Bookends, the Guild's Secondhand Bookshop is located in the Guild Courtyard opposite Café @ Concept. It provides a textbook exchange service that enables you to sell your old textbooks and purchase cheap copies of next semester's books. The store also carries a range of safety equipment - including lab coats and safety glasses.
Purchase your course text from the Secondhand Bookshop and you will receive a minimum of 33% off the original retail price of the book. You may lodge your unwanted textbooks at the store and when they sell you may come and collect the proceeds of the sale. The store only retains a small commission to cover the administrative costs in order to keep this vital service operating.
Full Guild Members receive a 25% reduction off the commission rate. The store is not restricted to course text. Fictional books can also be traded at the store. The following commission rates are retained for administration purposes: 15% for Full Guild Members, 20% for non-Guild Members.
The Guild Secondhand Bookshop is available online to check stock availability and contract status on the website. Please note there are extended trading hours at the beginning of each semester.
