Book Buying Information

In Store

Do you have books you no longer need? Bring them to us on Friday or Saturday morning. We may offer to purchase the books we need. The offer will be based on condition as well as our current supply and demand, usually offering twice as much store credit as cash (if cash is offered). Credit may be redeemed toward the purchase of used books from our general used stock on-hand at the store.

We accept book donations, which help support the store, with the excess being passed on to local charities. Over the years, with your help, we've donated hundreds of thousands of books to local charities.

By Arrangement

For large local collections and estates, we may arrange to have a buyer sent to you. We purchase books from personal libraries, bookstore inventories, and other collections.

Ask about our service of cleaning out all books from home, office, or storage. In which case, we may agree to not charge for the clean-out service if you donate the books to us as payment. This could save you the trouble or expense of moving the books yourself. We always do our best to make sure that all donated books, desirable and undesirable to us, will find a good home either through our store or through our connections with local charitable causes.

For large collections, or any other questions about selling books to us, please visit the store and talk with Glen.
