LCS Lending Library

The LCS Lending Library is free and open to all, but checkout privileges are limited to members of the LCS. To check out books from the library, you must be a member in good standing of the Language Creation Society (Become a Member) and agree to abide by the library rules.

Some highlights:

  • The LCS pays all postage—you don’t have to pay
  • You can keep the book for up to six months


The library currently has 227 books. Browse or use the search form to find specific titles.

If there is a book you think we should have, tell us about it.


Donations to the library will be accepted if a) the title is in good condition and relatively unmarked inside, and b) the title is in the relevant subject area. Any titles donated that do not meet the above criteria will be considered the property of the LCS and possibly sold or raffled off at a future LCC or some other event. Send a list of the materials you will be donating to Do not send the materials without contacting us first. Or, you can use our amazon wish list to send us titles.
