Online Virtual Bookstore – MBS Direct
All required digital and print textbooks are sold through our online Virtual Bookstore, operated by MBS Direct. We use a “Shop by Schedule” system which will use your course schedule to select books for you. Instructions for purchasing your books online using Shop by Schedule will be posted here prior to the opening of the Virtual Bookstore in July. All sales will be handled through MBSDirect. Books for summer reading will be available on the Virtual Bookstore in June. The online Virtual Bookstore will be open in July to sell books for the 2019-2020 school year. The MBSDirect customer service phone number is 800-325-3252.
Many of our textbooks are eBooks for use on the Windows tablets which will not need to be purchased before the beginning of school or before you have received your school issued tablet. These books will mostly be purchased through our online Virtual Bookstore, however some content will be made available through the teachers of specific courses or through other channels. You will receive instructions from STH for how to access your eBooks.
If you choose to purchase books from another source other than our official online Virtual Bookstore, you must match the ISBN# to ensure that you have the correct editions which can be found on the Grade Level Book Lists above. Please note that all workbooks, some novels and selected texts must be purchased new. Other books may be purchased used. Digital books (ebooks) and Digital/Print Combos must be purchased through our online Virtual Bookstore in order to ensure the correct edition, unless otherwise noted.
