Bookstore to offer textbook rentals


The San Joaquin Delta College Bookstore is now offering textbook rentals for the spring 2012 semester.

According to Sharla Perry, a bookstore customer service associate, this is first time the bookstore has offered rentals on campus instead of using a third party service.

In order to rent a textbook, students must fill out a rental agreement form, available in the bookstore, and agree to have a credit card put on file as collateral in the case of late book returns.

“[Textbook rentals] are a wonderful thing for students. They just need to be careful to return them on time so they don’t get charged,” said Perry.
