We Buy And Sell Used Books

Used Book buying appointments are paused for the holiday season.
We will resume taking used books for credit on January 4, 2023.

(You may make your appointments as far in advance as you need to!)

We purchase gently used books by appointment.  You can sell us your books on Wednesdays and Saturdays at 11am, 1pm, 3pm, or 5pm and also on Fridays at 1pm, 3pm, 5pm, or 7pm. We offer store credit only (no cash) for your used books. This store credit is valid for five years.

Book an Appointment

We have a three (3) box maximum per customer per month. 
Please bring in medium sized boxes of books (not gigantic boxes or bags) 
Please allow 15-30 minutes for our book buyers to go through your books.  You'll need to stick around while we look at your books.
Mold, smell, and water damage is contagious to other books. We can't take these. 

What We're Looking For:

Our used books mix is similar to what we carry new.  We buy what we need, which varies from time to time. We can always take regular fiction.  We love a good novel.
