Our library contains dozens of brochures on a variety of mental health and wellness related topics, and most are available in the Ebersole lobby. We also have several informational videos that can be viewed, and the books listed below.

How do I check out a book?

To check out a book, come to Ebersole and staff will assist you in locating a particular book or in choosing from books in a subject area. A book may be borrowed for the remainder of the block in which it is checked out, and may be renewed for an additional block if there is no one waiting to use it. If a book is not returned, or is returned but damaged to the point it is no longer usable, a material replacement fee will be charged until the book is returned or replaced. Clients of the Counseling have priority in checking out books, but other students may borrow books that are not in use.

Please note that some books in the list below fit into more than one topic area, but are only listed in one, so if you don't find what you're looking for right away, try checking other related topics!
