USED Textbook Availibility

***There is no guarantee that used books will be available when ordering online. Our system at this time does not offer real time Inventory. Online availability does not indicate store inventory. Used books are not guaranteed to have access codes.***

The DEFAULT setting on the website is set to "OK" for substitutions. Meaning, if no USED books are available, NEW textbooks will be processed. If you WOULD NOT like to substitute please change this option to "NO SUBSTITUTION". You will be responsible for the selection made.


By selecting "OK" to sub, you authorize the Owl Bookshop to change the books on your order from used to new and to adjust payment as necessary.


If you order used books and choose no substitutions, but no used are available, your order will be cancelled.


There is no guarantee that all the materials that would normally be wrapped with a new textbook will come with the used textbooks you are purchasing... as Buyback may or may not require students to have all materials when selling their books back. Books may also have missing and or highlighted pages, hence the term used.


Prices and information on educational materials are subject to change at any time. Citrus College and the Owl Bookshop cannot assume any responsibility for errors on listed information unless the books purchased in error are purchased from the Owl Bookshop. Such purchases are subject to the Owl Bookshop return policy that accompanies your order when shipped. Please be careful how you use the information on our web pages.



The Owl Bookshop sells new and used textbooks at a price designed to cover the costs of operating the bookstore and meeting all other required financial obligations. Textbook price includes all expenses associated with bookstore operations and personnel. (AB 1548)
