Please read the following information regarding textbook sell-backs, returns, and summer purchases.

Summer course textbook purchase: Textbooks for summer courses are now available for purchase online. While the Bookstore remains closed, staff will be fulfilling orders. Students can receive their textbooks via curbside pickup or by mail. Curbside pickup will take place Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. for orders placed at least 24 hours in advance. Pull into the Dunham parking lot outside of the Bookstore located at 1400 Marseillaise Place. Then call 630-844-5524 with the name on the order and make and model of your car. Your order will be delivered to your vehicle. Textbooks can also be shipped to your home via UPS.

Virtual Sell Back: The university has partnered with its largest book wholesaler, Nebraska Book Co., to provide you with an easy and free way to sell back your textbooks. Simply enter the ISBN of the book (usually found on the back or inside front cover), print a packing list and free pre-paid shipping label, and mail back. You will be paid two to three weeks from the time the books are received by the company. Follow the link here for more information.

Rented Book Return: In an effort to prevent the spread of COVID-19, the Bookstore is unable to accept rented books for return. Fortunately, you will not be charged for the unreturned books. You may keep your textbooks or sell them via the virtual sell back option.

The Bookstore staff is available to answer your questions or help you find what you need for classes. We also have AU apparel and gear to show your Spartan Pride even while sheltering at home. Be well and happy shopping!
