Textbook Buyback to Take Place Online
Brittany Rockenfeller

As the 2019-2020 school year enters its final weeks, Blair’s School Store has shared information regarding textbooks that students rented or purchased for use in their coursework this year.

For the 2019-2020 term, Blair’s textbook vendor, Follett, will not require students to return their rental books. According to an email from Follett, students now own all textbooks rented through their program. The company has decided this was the best option for all schools based on the unusual circumstances this year.

Students who purchased textbooks may be able to sell them using Follett’s online marketplace, Valore Books. More information can be found at www.valorebooks.com/sell-textbooks

“After using Valore Books to assist students last year, I am very familiar with the process,” said School Store manager Reanne Mauriello. “You simply scan the barcode on the back of the book using your phone, and, if Valore Books is interested in that title, you will receive a quote.” 

For more information or if you have questions concerning this change, contact Mrs. Mauriello at maurir@blair.edu or Follett Customer Service at (888) 382-3383.

Blair will post the list of textbooks for the upcoming school year to its website over the summer. Students and parents can sign up for an email alert that will notify them when the list becomes available. To sign up, visit www.blair.bkstr.com.
