Buy Your Textbooks Here

Based on customer request, we stock a large number of used textbook titles. Not only do students save money when purchasing used textbooks, but they help contribute to Hampshire College's goal of encouraging sustainability within our campus community. To further encourage active recycling of textbooks on campus, the textbook shop conducts periodic book buybacks at the end of each semester, as well as throughout the entire year. During book buyback, students have the option to sell their textbooks for cash.

The textbook shop is accessible whenever the main store is open; please ask a staff member for assistance. We're located on the ground floor of the Johnson Library.
