CCC Students Get Cash for Books During Spring Book Buyback
CLARKSDALE – Coahoma Community College students will soon have the opportunity to redeem some of the money they’ve used towards textbooks with the announcement of the CCC Bookstore’s Spring Book Buyback.
The bookstore, located on the first floor of the Vivian M. Presley Administration Building, will be accepting textbooks from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Wednesday, April 30 through Friday, May 2.
According to Manager Annie Hines, the bookstore will accept a wide range of textbook that are in good or fair condition in exchange for cash. Books in bad condition—pages torn, missing the cover, or water damaged—will not be accepted.
“Especially water damage—even if it’s new and you walk over here in the rain with the book uncovered, we can’t accept it,” said Hines. “So I advise students when it rains to be sure that they cover their books up.”
How much students receive depends on the condition and the value of the book, Hines said. Students can inquire about the worth of the book by visiting the bookstore where a representative can look the information up beforehand.
“You just have to come in and take a chance. It’s worth a try,” said Hines.
