Lehigh University is a private university in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania in the Lehigh Valley region. Originally founded in 1865, Lehigh University currently enrolls just over 7,000 students. The school has 25 varsity athletic teams known as the Mountain Hawks. Brown and white are the official school colors. Lehigh students can choose from the following options when the time comes to buy their textbooks and course materials:

The on-campus textbook outlet at the school is the Lehigh University Bookstore. Located at 1 Campus Square, this bookstore has everything Lehigh students need in order to make A’s in their classes. Textbook options include brand new books, used books, digital books, and books for rent. When you rent your books, you can save up to 50% off. When you buy digital versions of them, you can enjoy savings of up to 60% off. These two options are really your best ones when it comes to saving money on your textbooks. The store has a very fair return policy if you happen to drop a class, and you can also sell back your books to the store for decent prices. Along with textbooks are lots of other items here, such as Mountain Hawks apparel, discounted computer hardware and software items, graduation supplies, souvenirs, and general books for your reading pleasure. Most items for sale in the store are available online so you can have them shipped to wherever you are in case you can’t make it into the store prior to the start of a semest.er. The bookstore partners with other local retailers to offer even more savings opportunities to students. Check with a store rep for more details on this.

 The New Street Book Shop is an excellent local and independently owned and operated bookshop in downtown Bethlehem at 515 North New Street. Although the store doesn’t carry a ton of textbooks, you can pick up a variety of them here. But you can sell back your used textbooks to the store to recoup some of the money you originally spent on them. You can easily search the store’s inventory on its website to see if the books on your list are for sale here. Stop in to the store with your used books for cash on the spot. There are lots of unique books and reading materials available here as well that will pique the interests of college students.

For more books and the Nook e-reader that can be used to read digital e-textbooks, be sure to check out the Barnes & Noble store in nearby Easton at 4445 Southmont Way. This store is only a short 20-minute drive from the Lehigh campus and offers some quality books and items that college students can use.
