Gently used books are a win-win for everyone including our environment! Bring us your gently used books and, if we can use them, we’ll give you store credit that’s good for the purchase of other gently used books.
Books that we are able to put out for sale will be recorded as a $2 credit for you. Credit dollars can be used toward the purchase of other gently used books at half price. (example if you have a $10 credit you can purchase 5 gently used soft cover books for $10 instead of the regular gently used price for 5 books at $20)
HOW IT WORKS:
Bring your gently used books to the store. We will check you in and let you know how long it will take to evaluate your books. During this time, feel free to shop or leave the store. If you leave the store we will add any credit due to your card on file.
We’ll sort through your books – checking their condition, our stock levels, the sale history of the titles, etc. Books we can use will be put on our shelving cart and put out for sale at $4. You will receive half of this price in credit ($2), which is redeemable toward the purchase of any other soft cover gently used books.
Pick up your books. If you want to keep any books that we did not accept, simply pick them up on your way out. If you don’t want your books and would rather donate them, just leave them with us and we will be sure to give them to a local charity. You are all set!
WHAT WE DON’T ACCEPT
We don’t accept book with underlining or highlight (inscriptions are ok), books that smell strongly of smoke or pets, or books that are too dirty. Hardcover books that came with a dust jacket must have the jacket in good condition. Paperbacks should not have creased, cracked or broken spines.
Certain books become dated quickly – such as travel guides, guides for tests, software, or hardware, and most business and political books. Unless published within the past year, we don’t accept these types of books.
We also don’t accept: Book club editions, library books, magazines, encyclopedias, Readers’ Digest condensed books, cassettes, VHS tapes, DVDs and CDs.
