Textbook buyback is a bookstore sponsored event that takes place at the end of each term.  The buyback is an effort to recycle books that will be used in the future.  Buyback is a triple-win situation where current students get cash for selling their books, future students are offered money-saving used editions for next term, and the bookstore gets in-demand used titles to put on their shelves.    Buying and selling used books benefits everyone involved by cutting costs and reducing the environmental strain of printing additional textbooks.


How do you determine which books will be bought back and how much cash I will receive for them?

Why should I sell my book to the bookstore?

Recently, private companies and websites have gotten involved in buying your textbooks.  These third-party and online buyers claim to give you more money for your books, but  that's not always the case!  You must take into consideration that your payment is not instant.  You also have to spend your time and money to package and ship your books to the buyer.  Make sure you know the deal up front and don't take chances with your money.  These third parties can not beat your Glen Oaks Community College Bookstore in terms of payment or service.

The Glen Oaks Bookstore offers on-the-spot cash payment, guaranteed!  No hassles, packing ,mailing, or extra shipping charges.

How do I maximize my buyback dollars?

First and foremost, arrive at the buyback early.  The longer you wait to sell your books, the greater the chance that we will already have enough copies and won't need yours.

 

To get the most for your books,   
make sure they have no:

If your books came as part of
a package, be sure to bring:
