Universities will offer book rentals

Posted:

IOWA CITY (KWWL)-- Iowa State and the University of Iowa have joined 1,500 other college bookstores in offering rentals.

University of Iowa bookstore director Richard Shannon says rentals could save students more than 60% of the cost of a new book. They also say it could bring in more traffic for bookstores.

Iowa will have about 50 titles for rent from more popular classes as part of a pilot program. Iowa State will have 140 titles available.
