HONOLULU (AP) - The University of Hawaii plans to begin renting textbooks to students this month.
The school said more than 300 titles and 14,000 textbooks will be available for rent. The cost of renting a book is about 40 to 50 percent of what it costs to buy a textbook at full price.
Books available for rent are listed on the bookstore website and will be at the school's eight bookstore locations starting today. Rentals are available on a first-come-first-served basis.
UH Bookstore Branch Stores Manager Tricia Ejima said students may write in or highlight in their rentals just as they would with a book they've bought. She said renting textbooks is one of the best ways to save money.
