Always Try the FOL Used Book Store FIRST
The used book store saves students money on books for classes. A mother dropped by to praise the bookstore for its wonderful, wide selection of both classics and books for pleasure. Rising freshman Bryce Ammons was having trouble finding All Quiet on the Western Front for his AP history class summer reading. He walked into the bookstore and there it was!
What's Happening At The Book Store
The book store is requesting used ink cartridges that can be turned in for “Staples Rewards.” This funding helps to keep the book store up and running. Please drop your cartridges off at the bookstore during business hours.
If You Can't Find What You Need At the Bookstore, You Can Still Help
When you are shopping for books, if you can not find what you need at our Bookstore, we encourage you to shop locally. However, at smile.amazon.com, Amazon will donate 0.5% of the value of your purchase (of any type) to the charitable organization of your choice. Go to smile.amazon.com and designate the Friends of the Jackson County Public Library as your organization. The FOL Bookstore will benefit!
