Located on University Parkway in at Brigham's Landing Provo

Boomerang Books was founded in 2008 by alumni of BYU and UVU, with the purpose to provide a place for students to buy, sell, and rent textbooks. We were the first brick and mortar store to rent textbooks in Utah. We are owner operated, which means we provide the most knowledge and experience to help you.
We pay cash for books year-round and supply hundreds of textbooks to local students. We also buy i-clickers, graphing calculators, and unlocked i-phones.
We now sell children's books, popular titles, and disc media in addition to textbooks. Our Orem store now has Vanuatu Kava and CBD products to help you focus and relax after school and charging cables for all your electronic devices.
