Need Textbooks; Think the Humber Bookstore

books

As a new school year begins you will need a lot of supplies. Pens, pencils, highlighters, folders, binders, white-out, a daybook, notebooks, and not to mention a pile of textbooks that’s likely to be enormous. Luckily the Humber bookstores at both Lakeshore and North campus got you covered, and they have all these things and so much more. The North Campus and Lakeshore Campus Bookstores are the official Bookstores for Humber College and the University Guelph Humber.

At these stores you’ll be able to find all the supplies you need as well as any textbooks you may need. The official Humber bookstore also provides a bunch of textbook options. Depending on what you need and your financial situation you can buy used or old books, rent books, buy books in packages with the other textbooks you need, and you can buy cheaper digital copies. On top of all this you can also order all the books and supplies for this school year straight from the comfort of your own home. The Humber bookstore now provides online ordering at www.humbershop.ca. After ordering your books you can pick it up in store or have it delivered to your home at a small cost. Ordering online is the best way to skip those pesky lines that are always insanely long as students rush to collect their books at the beginning of the year.

Additionally, you can find even more stuff you’ll need for the school year at the Humber bookstore. First, of course, there’s all the writing and organizing supplies you’ll need, but did you know you can also buy small electronics. If you’re missing any tech accessories, Earbuds, pods, cables, chargers, USB’s, SD cards (Android and Apple) you can find them at the bookstore. That’s not all though; the bookstores got all your official Humber merch needs covered. They carry swag and apparel for Humber Hawks, Humber College, Humber University of Guelph, as well as a bunch of program specific merch.

The Humber bookstore also prides itself with its ability to price match any major online retailer, such as Amazon or Indigo/Chapters. All you need to do is bring proof or provide sometime to look up the price online and you will be rewarded a Humber bookstore gift card on the spot.

If you’re done with your old textbooks from previous semesters, you don’t have to let them collect dust on the shelve, you can take them to the Humber bookstore where they’ll pay you for your old books right there in the store. However, now’s the best time to trade in those books for cash. Bookstore officials say the best time to bring back your old books is right before classes begin or the first week to get the best price.

On top of all this, the Humber bookstore is now giving a percentage of everything sold at the North and Lakeshore Campus Bookstores, back to Humber to support student success and enhancement. Last academic year the bookstore managed to save Humber and University of Guelph Humber students more than $750,000, through used book and rental programs. The bookstore also hires 35-40 Humber and University of Guelph Humber students every year to work in the stores.

So, when you’re looking for books, supplies, or merch for this year’s school year, go to the official Humber bookstore for the best possible prices and to support the school.
