Books & Bookstore

All Lone Star College bookstores are now operating under Barnes & Noble College, a Barnes & Noble Education Company, as of October 1, 2018.


All orders for books and supplies must be placed online. All physical bookstore locations are closed. Payments for online ordering can be made via major credit cards and most forms of financial aid.  

Course sections may use different textbooks for the same class type, so please refer to your syllabus, before ordering online to ensure that you purchase the appropriate learning materials. Textbooks, electronics, clothing, and other supplies can be purchased directly online when selecting your campus location. 

Please note LSC-University Center textbooks are included with LSC-Montgomery.

Finding Your Textbooks

You can find the necessary textbooks for your classes by using the class search tool on the website or by logging in to myLoneStar. After entering your search criteria, click on a class link, and then click the “Textbook link” on the Class Detail page.

Textbook requirements are also available through your faculty syllabi and can be found using the syllabi search tool. Financial Aid students can get more information about how to acquire books through our book advances page.

A student of this institution is not under any obligation to purchase a textbook from a Lone Star College affiliated bookstore. The same textbook may also be available from an independent retailer, including an online retailer.
