How we buy:

We will sort through your books to choose those we think we can sell. We will offer you 20% in cash or 40% in store credit of our selling price for those books that we can buy. So, if you bring in a book that we will price at $10, you will get $2 cash or $4 in store credit. Store credit can be used for anything in the store, but cannot be redeemed for cash or be used on gift cards.

You can bring us books whenever we are open. If a used book buyer is not available, we will have you fill out a slip and the used book buyer will look through them as soon as possible and call you to let you know how much we can give you for them. We will hold the books that we do not want for 48 hours from the date we call you. If you do not come to get these books they will be donated to charity.

Please bring no more than 2 bags or boxes each week. If you have a large number of books that you have to bring in because you are moving please call us and let us know two days in advance. 376.4229
