< Back to My O’Dowd/Current Families


Bishop O’Dowd High School has partnered with MBS Direct as our official Virtual Bookstore. Every order placed through our official online bookstore supports O’Dowd and its students.

The school works closely with MBS Direct so they have the correct textbooks and materials for each student’s courses. Each textbook ordered, whether print or eBook, will be the exact version required by the teacher and it will be delivered on-time.

As you purchase your course materials, keep your eyes open for Guaranteed Buyback (BGG) titles. When you select these in-demand items, you will see the minimum amount you can expect when you sell your books back to MBS Direct. This lets you take into account the actual cost of ownership for each GBB title.

To order:

MBS Direct customer contact center is open 24/7, ready to take your order or answer your questions. Call them at 1-800-325-3252 or email them at

Please visit the online bookstore for the O’Dowd’s customized return policy and customer service help.
