Book Donation Policy
At The Green Read, we regularly accept books as donations. We accept up to ten books at a time and give a credit slip worth 20% off the same number of gently used books. Here's how:
1. BRING YOUR BOOKS IN
Bring up to 10 books in per day. No textbooks, encyclopedias, magazines, ex-library books, highlighted, torn, dirty, worn, or moldy books accepted. Dust covers must be present and in good condition where applicable. Books on politics, business, education, current events, and technology must be less than 3 years old. Rule of thumb: if we can’t sell it, we can’t accept it.
2. RECEIVE YOUR STORE CREDIT
You will receive a store credit slip for 20% off a number of books equal to the number given credit for. This is the only record of your credit, so keep this slip!
3. USE YOUR CREDIT
Bring your credit slip with you when you shop at The Green Read. Credit applies to in-stock used books, puzzles, and games only. The credit does not apply to new items.
Thank you for thinking of The Green Read to find your books another good home!
