Time is Running Out for Spring Textbook Purchases or Rentals


The College Book Store needs to begin the process of returning unsold textbooks to suppliers. Students and faculty should  purchase or rent any books they need for the remainder of the Spring 2013 term before the books  become unavailable.

If circumstances compel  anyone to delay a purchase or rental further, they should let the Book Store staff know so we can attempt to accommodate their needs.

During the week March 18 – 22 the Book Store  will be returning all unsold used textbooks.

The following week, March 25 – 29  (Spring Break ) we will begin  to return new textbooks for classes which use only one main text.

Shortly after Spring Break we will start returning all remaining new textbooks.
