Like to shop around? We offer a price comparison utility that allows you see what your books cost here and elsewhere, and also offers rental and digital options. If you decide to purchase elsewhere, we hope you'll start your purchase from this site. Kenyon will receive an affiliate commission on purchases that begin from this price comparison utility.

At the end of each semester, the Kenyon College Bookstore hosts buyback, an opportunity for you to get cash for books you no longer need. Prices paid vary considerably, based on condition, current edition and, most importantly, on whether the Kenyon faculty member has informed the bookstore that the same book/edition will be used on campus in a coming semester.
We bring in an outside contractor to run buyback on behalf of the Kenyon College Bookstore. We provide a list of titles and quantities for texts that have been adopted by Kenyon faculty for upcoming classes. For titles that are not on our list, the contractor may be able to purchase them for resale on other campuses.
Faculty may submit textbook adoption requests using this online form.
Faculty accessing this page from off-campus will need to log-in to the VPN (instructions on using the VPN). Once you've logged in, please scroll down and look for the Textbook Order Form link on the Remote Access landing page.
