Update: SPRING 2024 at this time we are not buying books as we recently acquired a few large collections.  Please find our standard book buying policy below.

We do buy books from the public on an as-needed basis. If you have books you are looking to sell or donate. Please email us a few photos of your book stacks before dropping them off. We will respond promptly to let you know what we need based on our current inventory. We welcome most book genres but not all (see below for books we DO or DON’T accept).  Books may be purchased for either cash or store credit.  For larger book collections or moving/estate sales/donations, we are sometimes able to make home visits.

Please e-mail:  or 

Book Donations

First off, a BIG Thank you for thinking of us!  We appreciate your donation!

We are NOT a non-profit so are unable to provide a tax receipt. For any donation that we get, we give a 10% discount off a purchase.  Any book we do not use and is in good condition we will donate along.
