10 am to 6 pm

We need your books! Bring in your used books in great condition so we have fresh inventory for our new bookshop! .
**Buy Back Weekend only, if you want store credit we will DOUBLE the amount we pay!**
Buy back will be held at our current store location ( 208 E. Main St)
All books must be in very good condition – absolutely no broken spines, no missing pages, no water damage, and no odors – including cigarette smoke or pet odors.
What we ALWAYS want:
*Very recent nonfiction – published within the last 2 years.
*Books about history – especially World War II, Civil War and local history
*Recent Fiction – published within the last 2 years.
*Recent Young Adult books – published within the last 2 years.
*Harry Potter
*Popular children’s series such as Percy Jackson, Bad Kitty, Wimpy Kid, Magic Tree House and Dog Man. Classics such as C.S. Lewis, Frances Hodgson Burnett, and Kate DiCamillo. Newbury Winners.

*Books by Danielle Steel, John Grisham, James Patterson, Nora Roberts, or Stephenie Meyer unless published within the year. It’s not that we dislike these authors, they just don’t resell very well.
*Harlequin romance paperbacks. Again, we don’t have anything against these books, they just don’t do well on a secondary market.
