Voyageur Bookstore has transitioned from a physical bookstore to an online bookstore for course materials. Apparel and gift items are still available at the on-campus bookstore.
At Rainy River Community College, we want to make sure you continuously receive the best in education. To help us deliver on this goal, we work closely with our textbook partner, MBS Direct, to guarantee that all students have the correct course materials. MBS Direct was carefully selected to deliver the best value for you and to ensure peace of mind because course materials are specific to your class schedule with no hidden costs.
We also recommend MBS Direct because their dedication to our school is unsurpassed. Each semester, MBS offers a Customer Loyalty Program that increases the amount you receive when selling your books back.
Customer Loyalty Program: We believe the process of earning your business never stops. When you buy from your online bookstore you'll receive a buyback notification email at the end of the term with instructions on how to sell your books back online. If you choose to sell your books back and create a quote through our online buyback program, for each book that is in-demand, you'll receive top-dollar, plus an additional buyback bonus for being a loyal customer. The amount of the bonus will automatically be included in the Buyback Value on your quote. This Customer Loyalty program is just one more way we are working to earn your business.
Monday – Friday 8:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m. during the school year.
Extended hours are posted during the first week of class.
