Textbook Rental Program

The cost of textbooks is included in tuition costs, as Louisburg College utilizes a rental program. The college checks them out to students at the beginning of each semester, and they are due back to the Canes Store no later than the last day of exams in that semester.

Students should not leave their textbooks in the hall, classroom, dorm room, with another student, or with a staff member. They must return them to the Cane Store themselves. The college is not responsible for books and keys not returned to the Canes Store and checked back in by store staff.  

If students do not return their textbooks by the last day of exams, the business office will charge the replacement cost to their account.

For more information, contact Sandra Newton, Manager of College Store & Office Services at sanewton@louisburg.edu or Emily Pearce, College Store & Office Services Assistant at epearce@louisburg.edu.
