North Light is a local, independent bookstore providing SSU textbooks for over 20 years.  We are owned and operated by SSU graduates and students, and work closely with SSU professors to find less expensive book options for students.  And, we guarantee lower prices than the campus store (run by Barnes & Noble). Whether you rent or buy, we’re always cheaper!  We keep our prices low by discounting new books and book bundles, buying older editions and finding great deals, and passing our savings on to students. And, 70% of our books are used! We are located across the street from SSU’s main entrance, in the Wolf Den Plaza.

We'll have expanded hours during the last week of school, so that students can return rentals and sell back books:  


Monday-Friday       12:00am-5:00pm closed weekends

Closed from June 27 through Thursday, July 8th  But, voice mails and emails will be responded to as behind-the-scene we'll be working on SSU's Fall book orders  

Starting July 9th: Hours 10:00-5:00 Monday thru Friday

"Extended Hours when Fall semester at SSU begins"

Want to sell back textbooks? 

You can bring your used SSU books to North Light, no matter where you bought them!  North Light does year-round buybacks, except during SSU “Rush” (week just before the start of school until approximately 3 weeks after the start of each semester).
