PBSC Bookstore

Need to buy books or supplies? Sell your books? You can do it all at the Palm Beach State College Bookstore!

COVID-19 UPDATE

The campus bookstores are open on a limited basis. Students are encouraged to order online and take advantage of shipping options instead of visiting the stores in person. Please monitor this page for any changes in the schedule (below).

Despite the bookstores being open, other College services will continue to operate virtually and students should leave campus immediately after completing their business at the bookstore.

Bookstores will only allow 50% capacity inside the stores at one time, and staff will continually disinfect regular touchpoints. They will also wear facial coverings. Customers at the store are also encouraged to wear facial coverings and practice social distancing as marked in the stores.

When applicable, students should verify their financial aid balance prior to visiting any of the stores. Financial aid students can also request to have their materials shipped to their home address. SHIPPING IS FREE!

Students must have their PantherCard in order to use their financial aid at the bookstore. Students can add a photo online and have their PantherCard mailed to their home address. Only PantherCard stations at the Lake Worth and Palm Beach Gardens bookstores will be staffed. Students wishing to get a PantherCard in person should check the available hours before arriving at the store.

If you have not yet received your PantherCard, you can view your Virtual PantherCard online to obtain the information necessary to place an online order.

Price Match

Your campus bookstores price match Booksmart, Barnes & Noble, and Amazon! A few simple rules:

  • If you find a cheaper price after you bought one of our books, we’ll give you the difference on a gift card, but only within 7 days of the original transaction.
  • The price must come from another local bookstore or online retailer. No peer‐to‐peer marketplaces or aggregator sites.
  • The item must currently be in‐stock with us and the local competitor or online site that is being price matched. Digital books excluded.
  • The price advertised has to be for the exact book and edition in our store, including accompanying components like CDs, online access cards, student manuals and the like.
  • The competitor has to clearly state whether the book is new, used or rented.

If you find a better advertised deal on a textbook that we carry, bring the ad into the bookstore and we’ll give you a discount for the difference. BUY IT. RENT IT. NEW OR USED ‐ we’ll match the lowest advertised price.

 

Rent-a-Text Program

Rent-a-text is a lower cost option for obtaining the materials needed for your classes! For more information about this program, contact the Palm Beach State College Bookstore on your campus, or visit the Rent-A-Text Website.
