Bookstores are located on both the Rocky Mount and the Tarboro campuses. Textbooks and school supplies are available at both ECC bookstores.

Dollars spent in ECC’s Bookstores are used to provide scholarships and emergency student loans.

Bookstore pricing, policy, and procedures are operated under strict state guidelines and are audited each year.

If you are a distance learning student, you may choose your books from either booklist provided (Tarboro or Rocky Mount) and you can order books online.


ECC is partnered with RedShelf to provide lower-priced, digital textbook options to purchase or rent.
