For Spring 2023 Central Penn will be utilizing the bookstore of Harrisburg Area Community College (HACC).

You will be able to choose to buy books for home delivery or you can choose to pick them up at HACC's physical bookstore. This also will allow you to purchase some textbooks on the spot without preordering online. The store will also carry Central Penn College merchandise.

More information will be forthcoming.

Your account with the old Bookstore (MBS/BNC) is still active. You can still access your account from their website if you need to return rented items or access electronic materials already purchased through them.
