Blue Tent OnLoan

Blue Tent OnLoan - Free Textbook Loan Program

BORROW MATH AND SCIENCE TEXBOOKS

We loan textbooks to our math and science students.

 

We've been in your shoes. We've surfed the web and scoured local homeschool consignment stores for economical resources.

  • We've always found cost and content to be a balancing act.

  • In order not to cut corners, we loan out the textbooks we want to use.

A PRINT + DIGITAL APPROACH

We like ebooks.

  • We include them in our math and science classes because they offer convenience and interactivity.

  • They have features embedded within them, such as examples, diagrams, videos, and extra on-the-spot help.

 

We like textbooks, too.

  • Blue Tent OnLoan makes the ebook + textbook combo an easy choice since hard-copy texts can be borrowed.​

 

WHAT'S THE COST?

Just cover our shipping costs. We ship textbooks by USPS Media Mail and charge $8.50 per book for postage and packaging.

WHAT DO YOU GET?

We'll ship you a gently used--highlight-free and writing-free--textbook to use for the school year.

  • We strive to ship only texts that have been conscientiously cared for.

  • Please don't highlight or write in the books you borrow. For this program to work, we need to be able to put each book back on our shelf to loan out for several more years.

HOW DO YOU ORDER A BOOK?

Order any time, but we will not begin shipping textbooks until June 1 for the following school year. 

There are two steps:

  1. Complete a textbook request form

  2. Pay $8.50 per book to cover U.S. shipping
