Helpful Tips about the Bookstore

Keep it on Campus! The Bookstore gives any surplus dollars back to the college, and all of their course material is available from the bookstore at reasonable prices.  The Bookstore is not a regular store.  Our goal is to serve our college community.

Students can use our free online “Compare” tool on the Bookstore website or on MyLangara.  It’s a service that compares Langara Bookstore prices alongside other online retailers so they don’t have to, and it shows that our prices are very competitive.
