The Used Book Sale will be back in the fall!

We know…right now all you want to do is put on some shades, kick back in a lawn chair, and watch your textbooks burn. But we, your friends at SAMRU urge you: don’t do it! We’ll be holding another used book sale in the fall, so if you hang onto your schoolbooks until then, you can turn them into cold hard cash. And you can burn that! If you want to? I guess? I can’t tell you what to do with your money.

You’ll be able to buy and sell your books with us starting August 22. It’s super easy to do – just drop by room Z203 (second floor in Wyckham House) on one of the dates below, register your books, set the price, and you’re ready to roll! Once your book sells we will contact you and you can pick up your cheque.
