Virtual bookstore coming to Luna Community College

Luna Community College students will have an opportunity to buy their books through a virtual bookstore.

Luna and MBS Direct have partnered to ensure that students’ textbook needs will be met. Beginning on Aug. 1, Luna students can order their textbooks for the fall semester.

MBS Direct was carefully selected to deliver the best value for Luna students. Among the benefits Luna students will receive from MBS Direct are:

• The nation’s largest inventory of used books for cost savings
• All orders shipped in a timely manner
• Multiple payment options
• 100 percent return policy. Course materials must be returned within two weeks after the class start date or within 21 days of date shipped, whichever is later.
• U.S.-based customer service by phone or e-mail

In addition, each semester, MBS offers a Customer Loyalty Program that increases the amount Luna students will receive when selling back their books.

MBS Direct currently serve the needs of nearly half a million students nationwide, with over seven million books in their Columbia, Mo. facility. MBS Direct was developed to help institutions like Luna improve textbook services. The MBS Direct program ensures course materials will be available when academic terms begin. This program provides convenient ordering, accurate and timely fulfillment, and better overall services for students.

MBS Direct will maintain a current list of Luna courses and materials, and in the event of any changes, they promptly notify students. Students may sell back their eligible textbooks to MBS using a convenient online buyback option.
