Sell Us Your Books – Large Libraries or Small Quantities

We are mostly interested in the scholarly and art books described on the main page–however we are quite general (we even buy CD’s, DVD’s and ephemera).  To sell books:  SEND PHOTOS OF THE BOOKS (SPINES) TO OUR EMAIL: (if these are technical books, law books, textbooks click on that page for instructions)

Take pictures of the spines close enough for us to read the titles.  If there are too many books you can send us a representative selection of photos. In any case, provide an approximate total book count. In the alternative you can send us a list of titles or call (212) 477-8647 for assistance with a large quantity of books in the categories listed on our home page.


For college textbooks, law books, technical books, click here.

After we receive your photos and determine that the books are right for us you can bring them to the store during open hours.  Parking is usually available in the neighborhood.  If you drive up we can help you inside and direct you to parking (If on the weekend read below how to drive to our front door in spite of the open street restaurant activity.)  In the event that your library is too large we can come to your residence to take a look. However we would need pictures first. If you are too old to handle the technology call us for instructions.

We have a donation program which is multifaceted.  From the sale of donated books we support all legitimate non-profits that ask us for money.  We also have a homeless donation program where the books that we cannot sell are directed to the people selling on the street.  There are some books that we would not accept because there would be no outlet for them. and we will try to refer you to an alternative place if we cannot help you.

NOTE: IF YOU HAVE BOOKS TO SELL OR DONATE AND ARRIVE BY VEHICLE FOR YOUR APPOINTMENT FRIDAY AFTER 5, ALL DAY SATURDAY AND SUNDAY: INSTRUCTIONS TO PULL UP IN FRONT OF THE STORE on those days: Because of the City street program on the weekends, the street has metal barriers at the opening. You will see our sign on the barriers. Easy to open, flashers on, close behind you. Store is a third of the way down on the left. Move our cones if necessary and park and unload. Replace the cones when you leave. No barriers at the exit end of the street.
