BLSA Library


Each year, BLSA collects books, study aids, and outlines to add to our lending library. BLSA depends on you to keep its library stocked. Right now, we have over 90 titles available! 

The library is only open to dues paying members during the school year. Members are permitted to borrow anything from our lending library on a first-come first-served basis. 

The library is reviewed each year to ensure our titles are up-to-date. We do not have all required books, so check our inventory to see if we have what you need. Dues paying members will be given access to the inventory list and request form.

 

What About Old Books?

BLSA will donate any books more than one edition older than the current edition in use to Liberian law students through Books for Africa. Liberia's justice system is actually modeled after ours, so they use all American textbooks, American secondary sources and even cite our Supreme Court cases in their opinions. The law students have no books basically and no library. So we want to help out!

How Can I Donate?

Contact Kinda Abdus-Saboor, the Academic Chair, or Elizabeth Hall. DO NOT drop your books in the EPIC donation bin if you intend to donate them to BLSA.

 

Does BLSA Sell Books?

BLSA does not sell books. If you are interested in buying used discounted textbooks and study aids, check out EPIC's book sale.

 

How is this different from EPIC's Book Collection?

BLSA operates a lending library, not a sale. EPIC collects books each year to sell to students at discounted prices. For more information on EPIC's sale, click here.

 

If I donate books, can I get a receipt for my taxes?

Yes you can! Complete the form here and return it to Angela Eyer's mailbox. Her mailbox is #150, next to the law school reception desk.

After you submit the form, you will receive an acknowledgment letter in the mail.
