Buying/Selling Textbooks

Buy Textbooks

Students are expected to bring their required textbooks on the first day of school. Click here for complete instructions on finding the textbook list for your student and/or ordering from MBS/BNC. MBS/BNC, the only Seton-approved vendor, offers new, used, rental and electronic textbooks at competitive prices!

Beginning in May, find required summer school textbooks on MBS/BNC

Beginning in July, find required textbooks on MBS/BNC for the upcoming school year! This list is not available until summer because we need time to verify available textbook quantities and editions with publishers. When purchasing new or used textbooks online, you can generally find the lowest prices in July when schools across the country have completed their academic year and the supply is highest.

Click here to learn details about purchasing textbooks from other vendors/locations using information from the MBS/BNC textbook list. Please note that MBS/BNC is the only Seton-approved vendor; buying from other vendors or families is done at your own risk. Here is the 2021-22 textbook list.

Sell Used Textbooks

Click here to sell back your used textbooks in May after final exams to MBS/BNC, the Online Book Exchange, or other vendors. 

Access Seton’s OnlineBook Exchange for families to buy and sell used textbooks throughout the summer and school year. Sellers post information and a desired price for a textbook; buyers contact and negotiate directly with the seller to purchase textbooks. When selling used textbooks to Seton families, please verify that the textbook is currently being used.
