Text Books are essential to student success, but if students cannot afford them, they risk failing. A gift to the Libraries Text Book Fund can help provide access to textbooks for our first generation scholars enrolled in the CARE Program.


Students are sometimes faced with the decision between purchasing a text book, paying rent, buying groceries, or putting gas in their car. Many students are asked to spend upwards of $500 on text books for a single semester. Some students combat this by sharing out-of-date text books or going without books all together. This fund aims to alleviate that burden for the university's most financially needy students by supporting their academic endeavors and our CARE (Center for Academic Retention and Enhancement) students.

The Text Book Fund will purchase text books to be borrowed by students throughout the semester at no cost to them.  Students who are already receiving financial aid or are on scholarship may still be eligible for this fund. 

As an essential part of a preeminent university, FSU Libraries are committed to ensuring all students have the tools they need to succeed. Your gift to the Text Book Fund can help these students and benefit the entire university. All gifts, no matter the size, make a real difference!
