Q. What is the difference between the library and the bookstore?
The bookstore sells, rents, and buys textbooks for Jefferson courses. The Downtown Campus Bookstore is located in the basement of Hartford Hall at 649 S. 1st Street. If you receive financial aid, you can use it to purchase textbooks at the bookstore using your student ID.
The library has many books and DVDs that can help you with class assignments, and you can check out these for free using your student ID. Library materials can only be checked out for a few weeks (see details here), not for the entire semester. The library has some textbooks available in our course reserves that can be checked out and used for 2 hours at a time in the library.
