Marquette High contracts with Follett Bookstores to provide textbooks and class materials for all students.
Follett partners with MUHS faculty each year to ensure families have access to the official book list, with textbooks from the right authors in the correct editions.
To purchase books through Follett, go to eFollett Bookstore. Online ordering begins July 25.
Used textbooks and class materials also can be purchased through the annual MUHS Used Book Sale sponsored by the Mothers Guild, July 25. See below for more information.
Annual Used Book Sale
As a service to MUHS, the Mothers Guild organizes and collects used books in the spring and sells them in July for the next school year. This is a great help to parents in keeping down the cost of education because the prices of the books are reasonable and 100% of the sales go directly to the families who sell the books. While you may not be able to purchase all your books at the Used Book Sale, you can get many of them easily.
May 11 – Instruction Packets Distributed
All students received packets with instructions, forms and information for turning in books that are in usable condition. Students should read the list of books being collected and fill out paperwork for each qualifying book before Collection Days, May 24-25. Forms should be filled in neatly and clearly so that sales can be distributed to the correct student. (We suggest that students use printed return address stickers on each book slip.) Extra copies of the Book Collection paperwork is available in the main office.
May 24-25 – Book Collection
Books will be collected from 8 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. Wednesday and Thursday, May 24 - 25, in the Wrestling Room. No books will be accepted after 11:30 a.m. May 25 without prior arrangement. (Tip: To avoid long lines, turn books in on Wednesday, May 24)
July 25 – Used Book Sale for Fall Classes (All Grades)
The Used Book Sale will take place in the Cannon Commons on Tuesday, July 25, for all grades. More detailed information about the sale will be mailed to families.
October – Sale credits and checks issued
We credit each current student's MUHS account with the proceeds from the sale of his books. This credit will be applied to fees assessed during the year—sports fees, AP exam costs, graduation expenses, etc. Amounts in excess of fees for the year can roll over to be a credit against tuition the following year. Senior students with a credit balance will be issued a check in June after graduation. Graduates and transfer students selling books will receive checks in early October as usual.
