Ordering Prep textbooks for the 2020-’21 school year

Hello Year 6 and Year 7 families,

Please find details below regarding the ordering of textbooks for next school year.

Ordering Textbooks: The website goes live on Friday, June 4.

The Canadian School Book Exchange (CSBE) will supply textbooks to students in Year 6 and Year 7 for the 2021–22 academic year. Their website portal will open on Friday, June 4. Those new to UCC should carefully review the ordering information in this article.

The online bookstore will be accessible here on June 4. Please ensure you choose the “2021–22 Prep/Middle School” bookstore option. Identify your child’s name and year, and you’ll be able to move through a list of the textbooks for your child’s courses. You’ll have the option of purchasing new or used (if available) textbooks. CSBE refurbishes/disinfects used textbooks as necessary, so many are in excellent condition.

Please order only the textbooks you require. You’ll receive an email notification when your books are shipped and will have the ability to view any previous online orders. If you choose to purchase only new textbooks and your complete order is in stock, CSBE will ship your order immediately.  

Orders that include used books will be shipped in August before the first day of class. Publisher back-ordered books will ship as soon as they’re available.

It’s very important that you include a delivery address where someone will be available during business hours to sign for your shipment.  If COVID-19 circumstances prevent shipping to a work address, you may edit your shipping details at any time before the order ships as required.

While creating your order, you’ll either use an existing account/password or create a new one that will allow you to enter the website at a later date to edit your order. Using this account, you may add or delete textbooks, check your order and delivery status, and view courier information.

Payment can be made by VISA credit/debit or MasterCard credit/debit. Your credit card information is protected by Network Solutions’ secure site encryption and identity verification technology. 

For assistance in using the website or to answer any questions, you may email inetsales@csbe.net or phone 905-828-7200 if you don’t have access to the Internet.

It’s important for you to place your order as early as possible to help ensure your child has the textbooks he needs to start the school year. Ordering early also gives you the best selection of used books.
