Use the "Textbook Look-up" tool to find the course materials for your course and section. All prices subject to change and course material refunds must be completed 14 days from class start and items must be in their original sealed packaging. PLEASE ALLOW AT LEAST 7-10 DAYS TO RECEIVE A PACKAGE. Every order must go through the register system in store, therefore there are NO instantaneous codes. Do NOT place an order if you need access right away, try, our e-book partner's site that takes credit cards only. The JJC Bookstore does not process orders Friday, Saturday, Sunday, Holidays, during college break/recess, and after operational hours during business days. The JJC Bookstore does NOT replace lost or stolen packages. If you are not comfortable with shipping at your own risk, choose in-store pick-up. Please note, when using a credit card, the total amount will be a pre-authorization. When the JJC Bookstore finalizes the sale through the registers, the pre-authorization may take up to 15 business days to "drop off" after the sale is completed and the actual completed sale amount has posted.

Rental Books

Textbook Rentals

SPRING 2021 textbook rentals are due May 21, 2021 to avoid late and lost fees. To receive a full refund, rental textbooks must be identified and returned within 14 days of class start and be in the condition they were rented. Rentals kept past 14 days from class start are NOT eligible for a refund. Late and lost fees will apply to rentals kept past the due and lost dates.

There are two ways to check-in* your rental book during the campus closure:


1. Please bring rental returns to the JJC Bookstore, Rm A-1012, 1215 Houbolt Road, Joliet, IL 60431. Our Summer hours are 8am to 430pm Monday through Thursday. 

2. For students who are unable to come to campus, you may mail the rental book back to JJC Bookstore, Rm A-1012, 1215 Houbolt Road, Joliet, IL 60431. Please mail out/postmark the rental by May 21, 2021


Any rental books not checked-in by May 27, 2021, or not properly identified, or damaged (as determined by the Bookstore) will be charged to the credit card on file (if applicable) and will include additional charges including a $10 late fee per rental, sales tax, and the difference between the retail price minus the original rental charge. All unpaid lost rentals will result with a hold placed on the student's JJC account and the balance due will be the total lost amount including all fees.

*The JJC bookstore processes thousands of rental books.  Please allow up to 2 weeks to receive an email confirmation that your rental was checked in.

Please do not place any other unauthorized refund or buyback items into the rental bin unless you have been instructed to do by a Bookstore employee in writing. Such items will not be returned to the owner, nor will they be refunded.
