Textbook Rescue

Pick up a quality, used textbook for free

Student at Textbook Rescue event

Textbook Rescue is back for 2019! Since May, students and graduates from The University of Manchester have been donating their quality, used textbooks to help you out.

Head to Main Library at 10am on Friday 20 September for our Textbook Rescue giveaway event, where books from all subject areas will be available to collect, free of charge.

The giveaway will last until stocks are gone – don’t miss out!

As well as free textbooks, there will also be support for getting started in the Library.

Help kick start your studies and visit your Library!
