The Guilford College Bookstore will offer students the option of renting select textbook titles beginning in the fall semester.
A rental will cost up to 50 percent of the cost of a new book (e.g. up to $50 to rent a $100 textbook). Students will be able to highlight or make notes in rented books. Renters will need to complete a rental contract either online or in the bookstore.
Follett Higher Education Group, Guilford’s bookstore administrator, will maintain a list of titles that are in high demand nationally or that are frequently assigned in Guilford courses. A full list of titles that are available for rent will be posted on the bookstore website prior to the beginning of fall classes. Books may be reserved online.
Additionally, the bookstore will expand the number of e-books for sale. E-books, which the bookstore began offering last year on a limited basis, cost 35 to 40 percent less than a printed text.
