SELLING YOUR BOOKS
WE ARE CURRENTLY BUYING BOOKS BY APPOINTMENT ONLY. TO MAKE AN APPOINTMENT, PLEASE EMAIL US A PHOTO OF A REPRESENTATIVE SAMPLE OF THE BOOKS YOU WISH TO SELL. THE PHOTOS BELOW ARE GOOD EXAMPLES OF WHAT YOUR PHOTO SHOULD LOOK LIKE; WE SHOULD BE ABLE TO SEE THE TITLES ON THE SPINES OF YOUR BOOKS.
Pilsen Community Books is happy to offer a fair price for books in VERY GOOD condition. If you have books sitting unread on your shelves, we would love to give them a new life– either on our retail shelves or on the shelves of a deserving school. We need your help to support the literature and literacy community in Chicago!
We do not buy these genres:
Pop mystery (Grisham, Patterson, etc)
Children's books or Young Adult books older than 2014
We are very picky about book condition. We only buy books that are in VERY GOOD condition – no tears, no missing covers, no water-damage, no smoking. Here is a list of books we DO NOT buy:
• NO books with highlighting, notes, or underlining.
• NO encyclopedias, law books, text books, or teaching materials.
• NO magazines of any type
