Donate old textbooks to new students.

Published on 15 May 17

Textbook Rescue is back in a bid to save hundreds of unwanted textbooks from a life of gathering dust, bringing them out from under beds and back into the hands of students.

When it comes to the end of term, do you have a pile of textbooks that you aren't going to use again? There are students who will be taking your course next year that would benefit from them.

Last year, your generosity provided new students with over 2,500 free textbooks.

This year we’ve got more donation points that ever so, if you have any unwanted textbooks lying around, drop them off at your site library* or a number of other new locations, to support next year’s students.

New donations points are:

How to donate:

You can take your unwanted textbooks to your site library* and drop them off at the donation point. A member of staff can point you in the right direction.

Additionally, for the new donation point at the Students' Union, the box will be located in the foyer - just look for the banner. For the other new donation sites, just pop them in the existing book returns boxes, and Library staff will sort them out from the returned items when they collect them - easy as that!

Your books will be securely stored by the Library until September; all donations will then be made available to new students.

Donate now!

*Please note that the Alan Gilbert Learning Commons and The John Rylands Library will not be acting as donation points. Site libraries may operate on reduced hours or close across the vacation period; a full list can be found on the Library’s locations and opening hours pages.

T&Cs: There is no limit on the number of books that you can donate. All books donated to Textbook Rescue will be made available to new students in September.
