Bookstore Notice

Attention Taft College Students

The Taft College Bookstore will reopen on July 13th. We will be only allowing six students in the store at any one time in order to maintain posted social distancing protocols. You will be required to wear a face mask to enter and while shopping in the store. 

We have extended the Spring Semester 2020 textbook rental return date until July 16th. All Spring Semester 2020 rental textbooks must be returned by this date to avoid late fees. On July 17th, there will be a $10.00 late fee per book. August 4th is the last day to pay late fees. The last day to return rental textbooks while still incurring late fees is August 4th. On August 5th, you will pay the full purchase price for your rental textbooks not returned and a hold will be placed on your Taft College account.

The least expensive way to return textbooks to the Taft College Bookstore is by USPS Media Mail. Please ensure they are postmarked no later than July 16th! 

We will be open Monday through Thursday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. through August 14th. We will begin Fall Semester 2020 textbook distribution on August 3rd.

Thank you for your continuing patience and choosing the Taft College Bookstore for renting your course materials. We are committed to helping you to stay safe during this unprecedented time. You may email us with any questions at
