SAVANNAH—This fall, Savannah Technical College students will get to try textbook rentals in the Campus Shop, the college bookstore. Rentals will be available at Savannah, Effingham and Liberty campuses. Savannah Tech and Atlanta Tech are the only colleges within the Technical College System of Georgia to offer this trial service.
“We want to provide rentals as a service to our students,” said Campus Shop Manager Mary Pearson. “We’ll be starting with only a few titles at first and if it works well, we will offer more in winter quarter.”
The initial test will involve only 20 or so titles, out of the hundreds of book titles the Campus Shop usually stocks for fall quarter.
Textbook rental will be available only for those paying by credit/debit card — no financial aid, cash or checks will be accepted during the trial period.
