Bookstore finds ways to get textbooks to students

The bookstore has had to make some changes to its procedures to continue to help and provide for students during Fall Quarter.

The Highline bookstore provides students with their textbooks (new, used, or rentals) and other supplies including clothing, course supplies, electronic device rentals, gifts, and among other things.

Bookstore copes with coronavirus changes

The campus bookstore is only available for online ordering, creating a much different school environment than students are used to.

Interim Bookstore manager Flint Thornton said that currently the bookstore has five permanent full-time employees and three part-time hourly. Pre-COVID, the store was open 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. with up to 25 student employees.
