Purchasing Textbooks

This is alert you that the Barnes & Noble College at CPCC will begin the process of sending textbooks back to the publishers next week.  What this means is that any textbooks we have extra copies of will no longer be available for you to purchase in the bookstore once we begin returns.

CPCC BookstoreIf you have not purchased your textbooks and need to purchase them for classes – please do so this week as you may risk not having the textbook in stock.

Any class beginning after today will not be affected and the bookstore will have those textbooks for you when the class begins.  This return only applies to textbooks for classes that have already begun and there are no additionally scheduled new classes beginning by the end of spring term.

Thanks for your support and we look to serving you in the future.
