About Us

The Student Book Exchange carries used and new textbooks,
and we supply our area colleges and universities including:
Missouri State, OTC, Evangel, Drury, The Forest Institute,
and Webster University.

Kenneth Washam founded the Student Book Exchange
in 1964 across from Missouri State University with the
mission to save students money on their textbooks.

While the company has grown significantly over the past 53
years, it is still owned and operated by the Washam family and
the mission to save students money remains the same.

Today the Student Book Exchange has two locations to serve
area students. We have expanded our services to include
student financial deferments and a book rental program.

We pride ourselves on our ability to save students money on
their textbooks while keeping textbook purchasing
convenient and easy.
