Textbook Purchasing for Spring 2020

High priority


For ordering your textbooks for the upcoming Spring 2020 semester, please carefully read the information below for obtaining your textbooks. 

Textbooks will be loaned to all Stevens Grant students based on the process below:

  1. Textbooks will be available for pickup in the Library beginning Monday January 6, 2020 through Wednesday, January 8, 2020 beginning 8:00am.
  2. Students must have their College ID and spring schedule in order to pick up the books.
  3. Students will sign for and acknowledge the following when picking up their books:
  • All books must be returned, in good condition, at the end of the semester (or at the end of their use if needed beyond one semester).
  • Books that are not returned, will be charged to the student and a penalty fee will be implemented for all non‐returned books.
  • At the end of the semester a student may choose to purchase their books if they wish, at the regular purchase price based on the average value of the book.

All students NOT receiving the Stevens Grant for the Spring 2020 semester should carefully read the information below:

    1. Books may be purchased directly or online from the HACC Lancaster bookstore at:

Once you have chosen the appropriate department, course number and section (choose “ALL”), click the green button that says “Add Course to List.” Repeat the process to add additional courses. Once you have gone through all the courses, click the other green button on the right that says “Get Your Books.” A list of all the textbooks will be displayed next, choose the books to add to your cart and then purchase.
