Please call ahead to schedule an appointment for dropping off used books for credit or donation.

We offer store credit towards other books for your gently used books. Here are some general guidelines for credit amounts and types of books that are accepted. If you have more than 20 books it is highly recommended you call or email ahead of time to see how many we are able to accept and when the best time is to bring them in.

How credit may be used
Full amount of credit may be used towards other used books in stock.
Credit for up to 50% off new books may be used, i.e. $10.00 credit for a $10.00 new book may be redeemed for $5.00 with a $5.00 cash balance due and remaining $5.00 credit to be used on a future purchase.
Sorry, credits cannot be redeemed for non-book items including food or drinks.
