It’s amazing how much technology has progressed for college and graduate students since I graduated. I remember trudging to the Hofstra University and University of Missouri-Columbia campus bookstores, lugging books up the stairs and outside to my car. Then at the end of the semester I’d repeat the process so I could sell the books back for a few dollars. Thanks to Campus Book Rentals the entire process I endured can be handled with a few clicks online. Plus a percentage of every sale supports Operation Smile, a medical charity that relieves the pain of children born with cleft lip or cleft palate. Keep reading to learn more.
How Campus Book Rentals Works
Search for the books you need on CampusBookRentals.com by title, ISBN, author or subject.
Save on bookstore prices. Campus Book Rentals prices are 40-90% lower than standard bookstores.
Free shipping both ways for purchases and returns.
Flexible renting is available so you can rent for as little or as long as you need. If you drop a class, you can return the book you rented.
Go green. For the eco-conscious student, reusing textbooks is better for the environment. We can’t control how many textbooks are produced. But we can control how the existing ones are used.
Find support and answers. If you’re confused or have questions, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org and call
Toll Free 1- 855-200-0021 Mon – Fri 8AM – 6PM MT
Donations go to Operation Smile for each textbook rented. (More on the children’s charity below).
Every three minutes, a child is born with a cleft palate or cleft lip. This affects their ability to smile, eat and talk. One in 10 born with a cleft will die before their first birthday. For each book rental, Campus Book Rental makes a donation to Operation Smile through its Making a Difference program: “We’re keeping our partnership with Operation Smile and have committed to donate a minimum of 80 additional surgeries between June 2013 and June 2014.”
Think about the textbooks you or your children own. Instead of a buy back option, you can just rent them to other students on your own.
