The Waubonsee Bookstore buys back your books

Please recycle the books you no longer need right here on campus. The more books you sell back to us, the more books we have for Waubonsee students next semester. Everyone wins!

Term-end buybacks begin the Friday before the term ends and runs through Tuesday of the week after finals. Check this site, our online bookstore or watch for posters throughout the campus for the exact dates and times that we will be purchasing books for the next term, thus paying you top dollar for your books.

Mid-term buybacks are held throughout the year. We purchase books at current market value. Please visit the bookstore's website for more information on upcoming and current buybacks. 

No in-store buybacks are held during August and January.

We have partnered with a national textbook company to offer students an online textbook buyback. Check the value of your books by using this service. Input the 13-digit ISBN for the book, and start the search. You'll get a general idea of the buyback status for that particular title.
