Textbook Rescue

Donate your old textbooks to new and returning students.

Student at Textbook Rescue event‌Since 2013, Manchester students have saved thousands of quality, used textbooks from a life of gathering dust and coffee stains by passing their knowledge onto the next generation - literally.

This year, we’re asking you to donate your unwanted books again.

So, search under your bed, blow away the cobwebs and gift your stash to your fellow students.

How to donate

You can donate as many books as you like via our book return boxes - we'll sort them out from the Library books, don't worry!

You can donate at the following sites:

Please note that any non-Library books placed in the book return boxes will be treated as donations.

All books given to Textbook Rescue will be available for students to collect in September.
