CATS Lease

Get books when they're hot, return them when they're not. What a great solution for high demand titles! Baker & Taylor's Book Leasing program is a great way to temporarily increase your library's number of popular books with the ability to return them when patron demand has subsided.

When you begin using our Book Leasing service, your library will build its own collection by retaining books ordered through the Monthly New Book Quota until your collection reaches its proper size. Each month, a pre-publication title list will be sent to you so that you may choose the titles you'd like to receive. All of your requested books will arrive shelf-ready, with all cataloging and processing completed to your specifications.

To learn more, click here to see our Book Leasing brochure. To receive email notification when a new Book Leasing Title List is available, please subscribe by visiting the Subscription Center. Email: leasing@baker-taylor.com
