Textbook Purchases
The Used Book Sale will take place on Thursday, June 9, from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. in the cafe. This affords students the opportunity to purchase used books for next year. Students must bring a listing of their 2016-2017 courses, required books, and cash or several checks to pay for books, since they may purchase books from several students.
