WHAT is the BookNook?
The BookNook is UW-Platteville's very own textbook re-store! When textbooks are no longer used by the university for classes, the books are moved to the BookNook and sold to students for pennies on the dollar. Prices on these previously used textbooks range from FREE to $10.00. Management reserves the right to negotiate higher prices with book venders and bulk purchases.
