BROOKLYN - A local college is trying to help students cut down on school costs by offering a chance to rent textbooks for nearly half the full price.

Brooklyn College is one of several colleges in the nation offering textbook rentals. The program offers substantial savings on a one-time rental fee rather than charging students for the cost of a new book.
