Used, New & Rare Books


We would like to ask that if you have more than 4 boxes of books that you please call the bookstore at 705.476.1450 to arrange a time to come in. By calling we can insure that there is space to sort the credit in as we are limited on where we can store large amounts of books. 

We want to be able to get through everyone's books timely but please understand larger credits will be dealt with according to how busy we are at the time. Larger credits can take up to 2 days to complete.

We appreciate your understanding during this busy time for us! Laughing
