Store Hours During Covid-19
The physical Bookstore will have limited hours during the first week of term during quarantine. During this time, all Bookstore items are available from the online store. Students who are quarantined will have their orders delivered to the outside door of their campus house each weekday. After quarantine, the physical store will return to normal hours. Snacks, beverages, supplies, logo items, and books are all available for ordering online.
- Undergraduate students: Course material and textbook information posted by faculty is visible in Bennington College's academic information system, Populi—just click on the name of the course in your schedule, and make sure you're on the "Info" tab. Students are encouraged to review these pages well before the beginning of term, and to order all required course materials from a vendor of their choosing, before the term begins. Although a limited number of books will be available for each class in the on-campus bookstore, these are primarily intended to facilitate the add/drop process.
- Required supplies are also listed on the course page in Populi. Course supplies will be in stock and available for purchase in the on-campus bookstore at the beginning of term.
- Postbac premed students will receive ordering information directly from the program’s director.

On-campus Book Buybacks
Any book can be brought to the Bookstore the last week of term. Books are ran through an outside organization’s database to determine value and are bought by the outside organization based on national buy-back rates and demand. The store donates all books that do not have buy-back value to community organizations and groups.
