The Used Book Store in Dickinson Square is an integral part of our community and provides a haven for readers of all skill levels and interests. The used books, jigsaw puzzles, audio books, CDs, and DVDs at our store are generously donated by the public and are lovingly sorted, stocked and sold by a dedicated group of volunteers. All proceeds generated from the Used Book Store go directly towards sustaining the store, funding building maintenance, programs, and day-to-day operations at Watson’s Mill and Dickinson House.
Book donations accepted during Book Store Open hours. Please keep donations to 5 bags/boxes or less.
The Used Book Store does not buy used books.
Please note that the Used Book Store does not take specific book requests, nor do we check inventory over the telephone or email.
