Email communications only (sorry no phone). Info about open hours is updated every Wednesday and Saturday by 9:00 a.m.

Here at the Global Book Exchange, we are all volunteers, so please be understanding when you come to get books or bring us books. We are not like a full-service bookstore, but we always do our best to help you, and we appreciate your patience and support.

Getting Books

JUST COME IN! No appointment needed unless there is a special note at the top of the Home page (e.g. Summer Schedule).

Prices: See Book Search for other amounts.

  • A few books – 5.00 – 10.00
  • A bag of books – 15.00
  • A box of books – 25.00
  • Teacher editions – each 15.00

GET A SPONSORSHIP! Some schools and teachers have sponsorships. A sponsorship means that either an individual or a group has given a donation to the Global Book Exchange on your behalf. If you have a sponsorship, it means that for one year — or for a certain quantity of books — you will not be asked to make a payment for the books you take. For more information about sponsorships, please see Sponsorship Programs.
