Rent Your Textbooks!

by Jaena Manson on 2017-08-14T10:22:00-05:00

Are you worried about how you will afford textbooks? You're not alone! 

The library gets many questions about textbooks at the beginning of the semester but unfortunately, we do not collect textbooks. We A pile of colorful bookscan't keep up and our budgets can't either! We understand your frustration. And that's why at the beginning of every semester we make sure to remind you that renting your textbooks can be a more affordable option. That means students can order their textbook at the beginning of the semester for a price much lower than purchasing it, use it for the semester, and then send it back when they are finished.

If you are interested in renting your textbook instead of buying it, check out some of these websites below. This list represents a small percent of the companies available – you can also search the internet for more options.

Or if you do want to purchase your textbook, many of the websites listed will allow you to purchase them at a discounted price.

The Victoria College Bookstore does have a limited selection of textbooks available for rent. You can contact them for more information at (361) 572-6430.
