Do you have books for us?


Agricola Street Books buys books from the public for store credit  every other month. 

If you are moving or you have over 50 books, we will consider buying your books directly. Please contact us at

Store credit can be used for anything in the store.


People always ask, "What are you looking for?"

My answer is, "The best books you have read."

Ideally, people would bring us recent fiction and non-fiction. We would also love to have award-winning books in all genres.

      We always need:




       adult fiction

       young adult (2019 or newer)

       kids fiction

       science fiction


       kids non-fiction




       local interest

When you arrive at the store, the choice is yours!


Choice 1: Bring your bag of MAX 15 books in the Kids Room and we will send you an electronic gift card and donate the books we cannot use.

Choice 2: Bring your books to the Kids Room. Stay in the store and browse the shelves until we have processed your books(approximately 15-20 minutes).

Nb: Sunday is typically the quieter day

  • The books we buy need to be in near-perfect condition.

  • We prefer softcovers(not pocketbooks/the smallest paperbacks)but we accept hardcovers as long as the dust jacket is not torn.

  • We offer $1.00 for kids softcover picture books and up to $4.00 for adult hardcovers.

  • We can only accept 15 books per person. No exceptions.

  • Please bring the books in a clean, dry bag. 

  • If your bag or box is dusty/odiferous/wet/covered in cat hair, we will not be able to accept your books.

Unfortunately we are unable to accept all of the books brought to us.

Here's why:

  • we may have multiple copies of the book in our store

  • it is a textbook or a vintage book

  • it is outdated(ex: How to survive Y2K)

  • it is an Advance Readers Copy

  • it is a book that may not sell at our store
