Textbooks collected will be used to start a small book program, BookSMART (Success. Motivation, Academics, Retention, Transition) in which students can visit our office and utilize the books in-house to study in our Resource Center.

Students who do not plan to sell their textbooks can drop off their books to our office, located in the Student Center, Ste. 218. Donate a book and earn Study Bucks (limited supply) for your donation!
