We need your books!


Trade in for what?

  • We offer a generous 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?

  • As we are still building out our store we will be announcing limited trade-in days and hours. We will announce these on our social media pages as well as our mailing list.
  • If you are unable to make one of our trade-in days, contact us and we can make an appointment to meet you at our shop for a drop-off
  • Our turnaround time to review and make an offer is longer than usual until we are fully up and running. It may take 1-2 weeks before we provide you an offer once your books are dropped off
  • Once an offer is made, you can choose to accept the offer and we will provide notice of your credit via email.
  • If you decline our offer we will arrange a time for pick up of your books at our store

What can I do with this credit?

  • Trade-in credit is for the purchase of books only
  • Once we open, credit can be used both in-store and online
  • Your credit can also be used at our interim pop-up events. Check our events page, follow our social media and mailing list for these announcements
