We are once again able to accept trade-ins and donations!

Whether you are donating or trading in, we have some basic guidelines in place to make sure this process is as safe as possible.
 


Trade in for what?

  • We offer in-store credit for good quality trade-ins. We do not currently pay cash for used books
  • Trade-in value is typically 10-25% of the original cover price but varies depending on condition and demand for a given title

We cannot accept the following

  • Paperbacks with noticeable creases in the spine
  • Hardcovers without their dust jacket
  • Liquid damage
  • Severe wear
  • Mold
  • Weird smells
  • Excessive writing, underlining or highlighting
  • Textbooks
  • Encyclopedias
  • Magazines
  • Former library books (including stamped Little Free Library books)
  • Advanced Reader Copies
  • Reader's Digest editions
  • Non-book items (ie: VHS/DVD, cassettes)

How do I trade-in?

  • Make an appointment by clicking this link
  • Once you have booked your appointment, please carefully read the instructions provided in your confirmation email.
  • Once your books are dropped off per instructions, your books will be quaratined for up to a week to ensure optimum health & safety standards before our team members process them (if you are donating your books vs. trading them in, you need read no further, and we send you thanks from the bottom of our bookish hearts!). 
  • When the alotted quarantine time is reached, we will take a look at each book in your lot. Trade-in value is judged based on condition, relevancy and saleability. 
  • Once an offer is made and sent to you via text or email, you can choose to accept or decline the amount.
  • If you decline our offer we will arrange a time for pick up of your books at our store
  • If we do not receive a response to your offer after 10 days, we will assume acceptance of your books and apply the store credit to your account.

What can I do with this credit?

  • Trade-in credit is usable for the purchase of books only (both used and new!). Please note that credit does not cover shipping costs. If you are using store credit  to pay in full on orders which require shipping through USPS, you will be charged shipping costs as well as a $5 handling fee. Choosing curbside pickup? No extra charges will be added.
