Top Nine Reasons to Shop at the Bookstore

  1. We care
    Keeping our customers satisfied is our #1 goal! We do everything to make sure you get the correct books and supplies for your courses.
  2. No 1-800 numbers
    We are located on campus. Our knowledgeable staff can answer any questions you may have.
  3. We accept returns two weeks into class
    If you no longer need a book, or the professor changes their mind, you can have peace of mind that we will exchange or refund your book for you.
  4. We buy back books
    Last school year, we returned more than $325,000 to students during the buy back periods! This enables us to have a large selection of used books, which saves you 25%.
  5. Free Pre-Pack
    We offer a pre-pack service where we package your books for you so you can save time in the store! It is also the best way to obtain used books. Forms also are available in store.
  6. No waiting for shipping
    It's as simple as that. We have the right books you need on our shelves.
  7. Get the right book for your class
    We have people in the aisles to help you find the correct books.
  8. We sell required supplies too
    We’re not just a bookstore, we also sell math, art, and drafting supplies along with general purpose items such as study guides, calculators, flash drives, notebooks and pens. Additionally, we offer a great selection of candy, HVCC apparel, and even laptops.
  9. Non-profit company who gives back
    The Bookstore is owned by the Faculty Student Association (FSA), and they have been able to provide funding for the renovations to the Siek Campus Center, installed security cameras in Siek Campus Center and Viking Child Care Center, and much more.
