Buying/Selling Textbooks

Buy Textbooks

Students are expected to bring their required textbooks on the first day of school. Click here for complete instructions on finding the textbook list for your student and/or ordering from MBS Direct. MBS Direct, the only Seton-approved vendor, offers new, used, rental and electronic textbooks at competitive prices!

Beginning in May, find required summer school textbooks on MBS Direct

Beginning June 25, find required textbooks on MBS Direct for the upcoming school year! This list is not available until summer because we need time to verify available textbook quantities and editions with publishers. When purchasing new or used textbooks online, you can generally find the lowest prices in July when schools across the country have completed their academic year and the supply is highest.

Click here to learn details about purchasing textbooks from other vendors/locations using information from the MBS Direct textbook list. Please note that MBS Direct is the only Seton-approved vendor; buying from other vendors or families is done at your own risk.

Sell Used Textbooks

Access Seton’s OnlineBook Exchange for families to buy and sell used textbooks throughout the summer and school year. Sellers post information and a desired price for a textbook; buyers contact and negotiate directly with the seller to purchase textbooks. When selling used textbooks to Seton families, please verify that the textbook is being used again next year by referring to this list of discontinued and repeated textbooks.

Click here to learn more about selling back your used textbooks to MBS Direct by bringing in your books to the MBS Direct EZDrop Buyback in the Seton Library in May after final exams.  Check your May Friday E-News for details.

Seton families can also sell unwanted used textbooks via any online vendor.
