We look for gently-used fiction and nonfiction, paperbacks, hardcovers, DVDs, audiobooks, and children’s books, but we accept all books and media, including music CDs and vinyl. Many specialty books such as old textbooks and instruction manuals are not sold in store but are valuable to us for online sales. We also re-donate books to schools and service organizations in need. In short, any donation you make will help support literacy in Central Indiana!

We are not able to pick up books from your home, but if you can get them to our parking lot we are more than happy to help carry them inside! Please call ahead to 317-384-1496 before bringing large donations (a car or truck load, for example).
