Used Books Policy

 

 

In the Used Book Annex you have a great place to bring your used books and earn store credit usable both upstairs and downstairs!  Whether you are downsizing, in the middle of a move, or have kids' books that aren't being read by your college-age children, we are eager to take a look at what you've got!

You can find us downstairs from the main store at 157 Winslow Way East.  Hours are 12pm to 5pm every day.

Please note that our policies have recently changed:

EAGLE HARBOR BOOK CO.
USED BOOK BUYING POLICY

 

BUYING HOURS.  From the 1st to the 15th of each month, bring your books to the Used Books Annex any day we are open, between noon and 4:30 pm, and we will make you a prompt offer on what we can use. Please limit your drop-offs to one grocery-sized bag at a time; this will facilitate speedy processing of your titles.

OUR CRITERIA.  The condition of the book is our most important consideration along with the status of our current inventory.  Here are the books we are not interested in purchasing:

  • Genre fiction (sci-fi, mystery, suspense, romance) in hardcover (paperbacks are accepted).
  • Magazines, DVDs, audio books
  • Library books
  • Most encyclopedias and textbooks
  • Reader’s Digest Condensed Books
  • Book of the Month Club books
  • Dated time-sensitive books, such as travel guides, test-prep titles, health and psychology titles
  • Books with writing or highlighting, broken spines, missing dust jackets, stains, mildew, strong odors, water damage, etc.
  • Books with missing materials (cd’s, cards, etc.)

PAYMENT.  We will promptly choose the books we are interested in purchasing and inform you of the price we are willing to pay.  Books are paid for in store credit, which is good both in the Annex and upstairs in the main store.   You will also get 10% off any new or used books you buy on the day you bring books in for sale – just for bringing them in.

DONATION. We have a limited capacity for processing books for donation. If our donation box is full, books we do not purchase must be taken back by the customer. We are happy to suggest other organizations that accept donations.

 

PLEASE NOTE:  ANY BOOKS LEFT OVERNIGHT WILL BE RECYCLED AND NO CREDIT WILL BE GIVEN
