Hinsdale South High School
Follett Virtual Bookstore
As you may know, District 86 is partnered with Follett Virtual Bookstore (FVB) for all your student's textbook, workbook and paperback novel needs. Just click on the On-line Bookstore link located on the left side of this page and enter your student's ID number. FVB's website will display all of the books required for your student's schedule. You'll have the option of purchasing new or used books and, in some cases, books are available for rent. For best selection, be sure to shop early.
You may notice that some of your child's classes do not require a textbook at all while others may require a textbook mandated by the State of Illinois. State texts are provided by the school and will be checked out to your student much like a library book. State books are to be returned to the classroom teacher at year-end.
Families are not limited to purchasing books through FVB. In fact, you are encouraged to comparison shop. To assist you with that, below is a link to a listing of our course codes along with book titles and corresponding ISBN numbers. When comparison shopping, be sure to use the exact ISBN number that appears on FVB's screen or that it corresponds to the course code and ISBN listed in the document below. By doing so, you can be assured that you are purchasing the correct book(s) for your student. Compare your search results with Follett and make the purchasing decision that is best for your family.
FVB offers free, next-day shipping via FedEx. In addition, FVB representatives will return to campus at the end of the school year for convenient book-buy-back and rental returns.
As always, if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the school.
