Any University of Louisville student looking to purchase their textbooks for the fall semester from the Campus Bookstore, will need to do so online due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Students will now be required to order textbooks online from the bookstore’s website and can choose to have their order shipped directly to their place of residence or to come into the bookstore for in-store pick-up.

The bookstore will be open from 9:00 am to 5:00 p.m. Customers will be able to shop in person for all items except for textbooks.

Andrea Herrera, the store’s manager, said the store will have several practices in place to help ensure the safety of customers and staff.

“There will be sanitation every two hours for common touch points,” Herrera said. “We will also quarantine returned items for 24 hours before putting them back in the store.” Bookstore staff must also have their temperature checked and answer a series of questions daily prior to starting their shift.

Masks will be required for store staff and customers and there will be a maximum of 68 customers allowed in the store at any given time. There will also be designated entry and exit points in order to promote social distancing in the store. 

Students can purchase textbooks online from the campus bookstore’s website by clicking the “Find your textbooks” tab. Any questions can be directed the campus bookstore at 502-852-6679 or [email protected].
