The college Bookstores operate on both the Santa Rosa and Petaluma campuses. The Bookstore offers new, used, rental, and e-book textbooks, as well as reference and general reading titles. In addition to texts, the stores carry a wide selection of school and office supplies. The Bookstore’s Art and Engineering sections carry a comprehensive line of products at competitive prices. The Bookstores also carry sundries, snacks, gifts, clothing, a wide selection of calculators, software at discounted educational pricing, among other items.

In all areas of the Bookstores, from the textbook to customer service departments, there is a commitment to provide quality and convenience.

Students may also purchase or rent their textbooks and selected merchandise online on the Bookstore Web site at for home delivery or in-store pickup.

Both Bookstores also maintain vending machines where items such as scantrons, blue books, pencils, and other necessities can be purchased after regular Bookstore hours. The vending machines are located in Doyle Library (Santa Rosa Campus) and in the Atrium of the Cafe (Petaluma Campus)

During the school year the normal refund policy of two business days applies to general merchandise except electronics, software, course readers, study aids or sale items; which are nonreturnable.


To provide the largest number of used texts possible, the Bookstores buy back textbooks year-round. More money will be given if the book is used the following semester.


At the beginning of every semester (fall and spring) a student will have one week from the first day of classes to return any textbook purchased that semester for a full refund, provided they have the current semester receipt and the book is in the same condition as when purchased. The closing date for full refunds is posted in both stores, on the Bookstore website, and on receipts every semester.
