The Book Nook - Buybacks and Donations Program

Buybacks and Donations

Hello there, Thank you for considering the Book Nook for your Buyback and/or Donations! As you know, 70% of the Book Nook Inventory is composed of previously owned/gently-used items that are acquired through our buyback and donation program.


Through this program, the Book Nook is able to give back to a more sustainable community; both environmentally (by recycling previously owned items) and economically (by offering more jobs and educational/community benefits).  


Please see the information below about our Buyback/Donation Program. 


If any additional questions, just reach out to us via phone or email and we will respond accordingly.


Thanks again for supporting local!
