Book Donations

Yes, we take books for donation!

When people donate previously loved books, we offer a store discount in appreciation.

In an effort to keep our prices low, we do not pay cash for previously used books.

How it works

  • We accept up to 10 books at a time. We're a small store and simply don't have the space for larger donations.
  • We accept donations by appointment only during the week. Email us to schedule an appointment. Please put "used books" in the subject line.
  • We ask that before you bring books to the store you consider if they would be appropriate for our shelves. If you would not give a book as a gift, please do not bring it to the store. We will reject books not in shelf-worthy condition.
  • Credits can only be used in store and they never expire. They can be used to take 50% off the cost of previously read books or 10% off new books.
  • Trade-in credit cannot be combined with other offers or discounts.

We accept

Books in good condition from all genres, all ages published within the last five years.

  • Encyclopedias.
  • Damaged books (no highlighting, writing, mildew or odor).
