    We believe in the importance of a small, friendly bookstore where the focus is on the relationships with our customers.

    For the past 26 years, our books have always been carefully chosen and the store is tended with care.

  • Trade-In Policy

    We offer credit of 40 to 50% of our resale price (yellow sticker) for gently used books of the genres we carry. Once your books have been evaluated, we open a credit account for you.

    Your credit will be on file at the store eliminating the need for the customer to keep track of credit coupons as done at other locations. The credit can be used to reduce the cost of your future purchases but has NO cash value. We do not pay cash for books, however, your credit can be applied to 50% of the purchase of any used or new books.

    We will consider books of every genre we stock. We want nearly new in age and in very good condition in order to meet the needs of our customers.
