We can’t take damaged books, encyclopedias or text / computer books more than a couple of years old! Current students can’t use out-of-date text books. Even if the subject doesn’t change, the book does. Audio or video tapes also can’t be used. We currently can’t accept any more Self-Help, Mysteries, Thrillers, or Romances.
Books can only accepted when the shop is open. PLEASE! Don’t leave anything outside! When you arrive, let us know that you are here. Then, we’ll assist with the unloading,
