The Lending Library program is currently suspended due to COVID-19.
CLAS maintains a comprehensive collection of books, lesson plans, multimedia materials and other resources to help teachers incorporate Latin American content into their classrooms. All materials are available to educators free of charge!
All requests for Lending Library materials are on a first come, first served basis and are subject to availability. CLAS suggests you submit your request with at least 2 weeks advanced notice, as our resources are in high demand throughout the year. Please contact us if you have any questions.
