Yes, Shippensburg University Lehman Library has a copy of 1984 by George Orwell (and a quarter-million other titles) - props to you for checking the catalog before you arrive. :)
We only have a copy or two, so if you're serious about borrowing the library's copy, you need to get here first.
(first-come, first-served - we cannot hold it aside for you)
Library book circulation lasts for the entire semester, but you (or any Ship student) can also place a recall on a library book which is already checked out to someone else.
If the book is a supplemental reading for class, you may want to acquire a used copy for your very own - Amazon has used copies for ~$6 and most used book stores also carry this title.
The Shippensburg Public Library has multiple copies, though they will be in high-demand during the fall. Their used book shop "The Book Nook" might also have a used copy (for around 75 cents!)
