Dear Country Day Students and Parents,


We have now opened the MBS Direct buying site for Country Day! Our goal is to provide you with the most convenient and cost-effective solutions for your student's textbook needs. To help reach that goal, we are now partnering with MBS Direct as our official Virtual Bookstore. Not only is MBS Direct on the cutting edge of content delivery to enhance your student's learning, but they are a convenient solution for your family's busy schedule. They also specialize in keeping costs down, while leading the industry with simple and accurate ordering and fulfillment processes.

Tour our CCDS Virtual Bookstore at http://bookstore.mbsdirect.net/ccds.htm to learn more about MBS Direct's services.

The Online Bookstore matches each middle and upper school student's course schedule so you may now order course materials with convenience and accuracy, by following these steps:

1.Access our Online Bookstore

2.Select the Upper School courses in which your student is enrolled OR select Middle School and the grade your student is entering. Upper School students can also search by their unique Student ID

3.A booklist will populate for all classes and/or grades selected

4.Select new, used, or digital books

5.Course materials are shipped to you within 24 hours of ordering

PLEASE NOTE:

1.If your CCDS Upper or Middle School student has course changes or is not yet enrolled in a course, that course's materials will not show up automatically when searching by Student ID. You can add materials by searching for individual courses.

2.Some Upper School courses have sections which use different books. If you are searching by course title, and not student ID, be sure to select the correct teacher as well.

3.You can purchase materials for multiple students all at once by selecting all grades and courses in which your students are enrolled.

4.In the case that a student's schedule changes or a book is no longer needed, please do not remove materials from their packaging for an easy return.

Dear Country Day Students and Parents,

We are excited to announce that the CCDS Middle School and Upper School are partnering with MBS Direct for book purchases for the 2017-18 school year. It is our goal to make things as simple and as cost-efficient as possible for your family, and MBS is a proven leader in online bookselling for middle, high, and post-secondary schools.

We will launch MBS Direct in July, but wanted you to have some information ahead of time and to know that MBS Direct is now taking buybacks of many of the books we have used this school year. We have a news note on the school's website's main page to help you.

While we are not, yet, ready to open the MBS Direct buying site for Country Day, we are already working side-by-side with MBS Direct to organize our Online Bookstore to match each middle and upper school student's course schedule. In mid-July, you will order course materials with convenience and accuracy, by following these steps:

  1. Access our Online Bookstore
  2. Select the courses in which your student is enrolled
  3. Select new, used, or digital books
  4. Course materials are shipped to you within 24 hours of ordering

In keeping with the commitment to money-savings, MBS Direct has developed a multitude of services designed specifically for our school:

  • A Guaranteed Buyback program to help your family budget for the entire academic term and understand how much it will truly cost to own a specific textbook
  • Used books up to 25% off the price of a new book price
  • Out-the-door in 24 shipping policy
  • Customer Loyalty program for more money at buyback
  • FREE UPS Ground shipping on orders over $99 for one week when the bookstore first opens

Ordering your student's textbooks can be quite challenging with many uncertainties using other online vendors, which is ultimately why our school chose MBS Direct. We strongly urge you to use MBS Direct to guarantee your student the correct book, competitive prices, and the highest level of confidence and satisfaction. In addition, MBS Direct's 100% return policy will refund your money for 30 days after the order is placed or 30 days after school has started, whichever comes later.

If you have questions or concerns about the ordering process or any other product and service MBS Direct offers, their customer service team is ready to answer questions, 24 hours per day, 7 days per week. Just call 1-800-325-3252 or email VB@mbsbooks.com. We will send detailed directions when we are up and running with MBS Direct in July.

Best,

Stephanie Luebbers Theresa Hirschauer

Head of Upper School Head of Middle School
