Textbook Store

Welcome to the Textbook Store of Prairie Lights Books. We carry course books for the University of Iowa.


Where possible, we list a choice between new and used books. In most cases, however, there is only one option.

Home Delivery vs. In-Store Pick up

You have the option of either having your order mailed to you or you can pick it up in the store. There is a shipping charge for home delivery, but not for in-store pick up.


The prices listed on individual courses are for in-store pick up only. Prices for books to be delivered may be higher. All prices are subject to change.


Please contact the store for our texbook return policy



If it says "On Our Shelves Now" below the "Add to Cart" button, we have it in stock. All other titles will have to be special ordered. The online inventory display is updated every 4 hours.
