The bookstore in the Student Union and located at the intersecon Rex Street and St. Mary Boulevard
will oer any textbook which is required for a class at UL Lafayee. It is well-known
that college textbooks can be expensive, so the Bookstore allows student to rent or
buy used textbooks to help with costs. We suggest using cauon when buying
textbooks prior to the rst day of class, as some books are not required.
