I didn’t buy the textbook because…

Ok, we know some of you don’t buy all of the required textbooks for your classes, for many different reasons.

Share those reasons!  There’s a whiteboard in the library that’s headlined “I didn’t buy the textbook because…” with a pile of Post-Its next to it.  Write your reason on a Post-It and stick it to the board.  And while you’re there, grab a flyer that has a list of summer courses that have sections with ZTC (Zero Textbook Cost)!
