Textbook Buyback Time!

Textbook Buyback Time


Did you know that your used books could get you cash on the spot??

 Parkland College Bookstore offers a buyback service at the end of every semester, in order for students to take advantage of an easy and fast option to unload unwanted textbooks and recoup some of their original investment. No proof of purchase required and even books purchased elsewhere may qualify. 

 This fall semester, bring your old textbooks with your student ID card (or state ID) to the Parkland Bookstore on Mon-Fri, Dec 10-14, between the hours of 8 am and 6 pm (8 am–5 pm on Fri), to find out how much they're worth!  





Textbook Return Deadline


Books must be returned in "perfect" condition. No water damage, creases, etc.

16 week courses: textbooks must be returned within 2 weeks of the start of the term.

13 & 8 week courses: textbooks must be refunded within 1 week of the term's start date.

RENTAL BOOKS returned after the refund deadline will NOT be eligible for a refund of rental fees. They can be turned in at any time before 12/14/18 to avoid being charged replacement fees.
