Bookstore Special Events and Sellbacks

SellbacksSell your books back to the UMKC bookstores–get cash, enter for a chance to win an iPad mini, and help your fellow students all at the same time!

Sellbacks start THIS WEEK at the UMKC Bookstore in the Student Union and the UMKC Health Sciences Bookstore.   You can also return your rental textbooks at the same time (be sure NOT to sell those books back, of course!).

And in the interest of planning ahead, sign-up now for Spring 2014 book reservations–then all you have to do is pick-up and pay for your books in January!

UMKC Bookstore in the Union is hosting a special author’s event with Dr. Mark Morgan, MU professor and author of Hook, Line & Sinker, a compilation of Missouri fishing stories.  Dr. Morgan will be signing copies of his book on Wednesday, December 4th from Noon-2pm.

Join the Health Sciences Bookstore on December 5th for Customer Appreciation and Holiday Open House for prize drawings, refreshments, special pricing on technology and accessories (as good or BETTER than Black Friday!), and sale prices on UMKC clothing, scrubs, equipment, and Medical review and reference books.
