When We Buy Books
WALK-IN: 11am-4pm Tues-Sat
Some after-4 appointments may be available on Fri-Sat. Please call at least one day in advance.
COLLECTION VISITS: We can come to visit your collection on Sunday (not before 1pm) or Monday. Currently serving only the area within 20 minutes of Iowa City, though we may consider exceptions for uncommon collections of special interest (Latin, Greek, academic interest, antiquarian, Iowa history and natural history, small press poetry, etc). Please call at least three days ahead for a collection visit. During the April-September peak season, the schedule can fill quickly; please help us to reserve as many visit days as possible for persons with >10 boxes/shelves of books to sell and/or who have mobility concerns. Thank you for being considerate.
