How many books can I check out? For how long?
At this time, each borrower can only check out 3 ebooks or audiobooks at a time. You can select either 7, 14, or 21 day checkout periods. You can always return a book early if you finish it before it is due. If there is no one waiting for the book to become available and you would like more time, you may also choose to extend your loan.

I’m interested in a book that’s not in your collection.
We plan to expand our collection as our funding allows. If you are interested in a particular title you can use the recommend feature in OverDrive and we will consider purchasing your recommendations as funds become available. Before recommending, please check your local public library for availability first.

Jean MacNeill Inspiration Library

CARD-USF is proud to offer the Jean MacNeill Inspiration Library, a uniquely curated collection of materials focused on Autism Spectrum Disorders and surrounding areas of interest. The library serves as a resource for community and professional development. We currently have books, multimedia kits, DVDs, and periodicals available for viewing. The library also features a children’s section that includes books, games, and toys. All community members and visitors are welcome to use materials inside the Inspiration Library during regular operating hours. However, materials cannot be checked out directly by non-USF affiliates.

Access to the library is available by appointment only. For more information please contact Megan Grant at megangrant@usf.edu.


Due to the current pandemic the USF campus, including the Inspiration Library, is not open to the public at this time. Please check out our digital library instead!
