    If the cost of textbooks is an issue, try one of these resources to find affordable texts

    Student Book Exchange

    Book exchange

    Buy and sell your textbooks with the Book Exchange managed by your Associated Student Government.

    Are you, like most students, concerned about the high price of textbooks? If so, check out the Student Book Exchange located in the Oregon City campus Student Life and Leadership Office, CC 152. The book exchange is run by leadership students who understand how difficult buying and selling textbooks can be. The exchange is open during the first two weeks of Fall, Winter, and Spring terms, and is also open during finals week of Fall and Winter terms. The book exchange does not take place Summer Term.

    If you're looking to buy textbooks, come to CC 152 to check out our inventory. If you wish to sell books, come to CC 152 to fill out a contract which includes information about the book as well as what you want to charge.

    Note: CCC Associated Student Government charges $2 per contract as a handling fee and does not guarantee the sale of your book. ASG members simply facilitate the process.

    Lending Library

    With CCC's Lending Library, you can rent a textbook for $20 for the term. The ASG accepts applications on the first Monday of Fall, Winter and Spring terms, and helps students on a first-come, first-served basis. Books are limited, but the library is growing each term so check back often to see if we have what you need.

    Book Grants

    The ASG offers a limited number of grants to support students who need help paying for textbooks. Apply at www.clackamas.edu/asg/grants.
