Book Donation Info

 Do you take books for donation?

Yes, we do! When people donate previously owned books to our store, we offer a store discount of previously owned books in gratitude. For example, if we accept 10 donated books, you receive a discount card for 30% off up to 10 previously owned books (with prices that end in .99). Like a coupon, this is a one-time use card. It does not expire.

To keep the prices of our books low, we do not pay money for previously owned books. 

What are the donation guidelines?

  • We are accepting books at both locations
  • We accept books anytime Mon-Fri. No appointment required.

We ask that before you bring books to the store you consider whether or not they would be appropriate for our shelves. We are very picky about the condition of books we offer to our Guests. If you would not give a book as a gift, please do not bring it to the store. We will instantly reject books that are not in shelf-worthy condition or do not align with our criteria.
