Lone Star College is increasing students’ access to purchase textbooks, class supplies and other items through its Lone Star College Virtual Bookstore. The new service begins Oct. 1 and is designed to make buying school supplies more efficient.
“The Lone Star College Virtual Bookstore will seamlessly integrate into students’ academic journey, making it easier for them to purchase necessary educational materials,” said Jennifer Mott, LSC CFO. “Lone Star College remains committed to providing the necessary resources to ensure our students are successful.”
The Lone Star College Virtual Bookstore is a simplified resource offering hundreds of new and used books, eBooks and rentals to help students stay prepared for their courses throughout their academic year. The program, powered by TextbookX, features a Marketplace with third-party sellers. The site will also offer LSC merch and 24/7 student support.
“The Virtual Bookstore will provide a sustainable approach to education, reduce paper waste and give students more free time to study, participate in campus activities and explore other interests,” said Mott.
One new advantage is students can now have their ordered books sent directly to a designated LSC location. The new service will offer substantial financial deals and savings.
