Donate your old textbooks

The end of the year is upon us and you may be moving on to your new career or just needing to make space on your book shelf. Most people have old textbooks that they would like to get rid of, but don't necessarily want to put them in the trash. What can you do?

The library accepts donations and to donate you simply fill out a form and drop your book off to us. Library staff will then check that the item is still suitable to be placed on the shelves.

Another option for cash strapped students is to sell your old textbooks. If you are sticking around locally, you can advertise textbooks online via the JCU student bulletins. Many students use Facebook to advertise as well, and of course Amazon and eBay. The newest place to sell your used textbooks is via the Bookshop at JCU which is now part of the Co-op chain.
