Used Book Buying Policy

Our Policy

We are happy to offer trade credit or cash for used books. We also accept donations.

We accept books from 10 am – 2 pm Monday through Friday, and 10 am – 12 pm on Saturday.

Due to space limitations, please limit your books to one or two boxes or bags of books at a time. You will have the most success if these books are in good to excellent condition and follow the guidelines below.

What we accept:

  • Used books in good to excellent condition

What we do not accept:

  • Books in poor condition:
    • Water damaged
    • Torn covers/dust jackets
    • Hardcovers without dust jackets
    • Books with stains
    • Books with broken spines
    • Books with odor or mildew
  • Book Club editions (with the exception of recent Book of the Month Club books)
  • Ex-library books
  • Promotional items/advanced reader’s copies
  • Reader’s digest condensed books
  • Encyclopedias or partial sets of books
  • Most textbooks
  • Books that do not reflect our store inventory
  • Books with out of date information (travel, current events, etc.)

Our process:

We will sort through your books to decide which books we will be able to take based on the above criteria. Then we will make an offer of in-store credit or cash. If you choose to receive store credit, you can use it right away, or we will give you a trade credit card to record your amount.
