Bethune-Cookman University is an historically black institution of higher education located in Daytona Beach, Florida, home to the famous Daytona International Speedway and Daytona 500 race each February. Founded in 1904, it is a private school with about 3,500 students currently enrolled in courses annually. The school’s athletic teams compete in the MEAC and are called the Wildcats. Bethune-Cookman students have a few options on where to buy their textbooks. Here are the best bookstores to check out for books:

The Bethune-Cookman University Bookstore is the primary textbook outlet serving the school’s students and professors. It is housed right on campus at 740 West International Boulevard. Open Monday through Friday, this bookstore is fully stocked with all of the books and course supplements that students need to succeed academically. Textbooks are available new, used, and for rent. There are also many books available in digital format, also called e-books. Many college students enjoy using e-books because of how convenient they are. You can read them practically anywhere on your laptop, tablet, or even your phone if you don’t mind the smaller screen. There is a full line of accessories for sale as well, such as Wildcats hats, shirts, hoodies, and items for kids who want to root on their favorite athletic teams at the university. Additionally, you can purchase discounted software, peripherals, and even laptop and desktop computers here. Most items sold in the store are also sold online. Backpacks, bags, desk accessories, and diploma frames are on the shelves as well.

Located right down the street from Bethune-Cookman, the College Book Rack at 1456 West International Speedway Boulevard in downtown Daytona Beach is an excellent choice for textbooks off-campus. Although more students from Daytona State College tend to shop here, Bethune-Cookman students and those attending any other local colleges will find a great selection of textbooks, course supplies, college gear for dorm rooms, and more. You can buy or rent textbooks here, including lots of used books and materials at low prices. Open Monday through Friday, College Book Rack has some of the best prices on books in town. You can reserve books and then pick them up at the store or order them online and have them shipped to your doorstep. With so many choices and options, this is a must-visit bookstore for college students on Florida’s east coast because of the great prices and selection of used textbooks.
