Textbook Services
M-F, 8 a.m. - 4 p.m. 
29 Hagestad Hall. 


Our mission is to provide primary and secondary textbooks and learning resources to University of Wisconsin-River Falls students in direct support of the curriculum. Our service is primarily for undergraduate students.

Hours of Operation

Monday - Friday

8 am - 4 pm

Saturday & Sunday


Textbook Services is open all year, excluding official university holidays and closures. We do have extended hours during textbook issue and return, which will be posted at least one week in advance.

Textbook Drop Boxes

Textbook Services has two drop boxes for returning textbooks. One is just outside our doors in the basement of Hagestad Hall. The other is outside Hagestad Hall on the east side. Both of these are open whenever we are closed. Books placed in the drop boxes are checked in the next business day.


Your student ID card or another form of photo ID is REQUIRED when you pick up your textbooks
While an ID card is not required to return books, it helps the process go faster.

Dropped Class Returns

A reminder to students that textbooks from dropped classes must be returned within 4 calendar days of the date of dropping the class. (This includes weekend days.) Books due Saturday or Sunday will be considered on time if they are in the drop box when we open on Monday morning. The late fine for unreturned books from a dropped class is $5 per book, with a maximum of $10 per class.
