We want your books!

Bring in your books for Read Queen Dollars !

Read Queen Dollars work like a discount program. Your Read Queen Dollars will be automatically applied to save you 10% off new books, gifts, toys, stationery and 50% off used books. You will always pay something, but as long as you have Read Queen Dollars in your account, you will always save something, too! Read Queen Dollars cannot be used for items in the Cafe. 

Some of your books might end up on our shelves. Some books we cannot use, and these may end up in a variety of places.  Some books may end up in Little Free Libraries around town, or they may go through various channels across the country or may even go all the way to Africa for childrens’ reading programs! Some books are so damaged they are no longer acceptable reading material. In that case, these books will get pulped for housing insulation.  We work hard to keep books from ending up in the trash. 

Typically, we give you 30% of our sale price in RQ Dollars if we can use your book. If your book is used in these other programs, we will still give you RQ Dollars, just not as much.  Any way your book is used, you get RQ Dollars for it! 

Please understand that due to the number of books we receive, we cannot not return books that will not end up on our shelves as it is a logistical nightmare to coordinate book pick up.  You will receive credit, but you will not get your books back that don’t get used in our store. 

Anywhere your book ends up makes a huge difference to our community and our planet and we thank you for them! 

Feel free to drop books anytime other than Saturdays.  We ask that each box of books be no larger than file-folder size. Please add your name and email in each box to ensure you receive proper credit.
