Store Policy

Covid-19 update:

Yes, we are still accepting books for credit- Mondays to Thursdays only 

It is now a drop-off system. We ask that you drop off no more than 12-14 books in a bag at a time, labeled with your name, phone number, and the date you dropped them off. Under the table when you come in are some crates that you can put your books in, there are some extra bags there if you wish to keep your bags- you can switch. There is a clipboard on the table for you you to fill out. At the end of the day these books are taken off-site to a secondary location to be gone through and in the next day or so, we will contact you and let you know how much credit you brought in and will add it to your account. 

There is a limit of 1 bag of books per person, per day for cash or credit. Thank-you

**In response to recent changes for businesses to help stop the spread of Covid-19 effective immediately, we will be only accepting books for credit from our regular customers who are currently set up in our system. If you are not currently set up in our system please call ahead

Reducing the spread of Covid19 is everyone’s responsibility. Keeping our staff and customers safe, while providing a little normalcy of browsing for your next great read, is our goal. We appreciate everyone’s continued support of The Dartmouth Book Exchange and look forward to serving you.

Bringing in Books for Credit:

We are always looking for fairly new current books and books of interest. i.e. Bestsellers and Local Interest…

Generally speaking we give up to $1.50 in book credit for current Mass Market Paperbacks, and up to $4.00 in credit for Trade Paperbacks (larger softcovers) and Hardcovers. This is a guideline and we may give more or less depending on the book.

We check for condition, format and number of copies on hand.  Generally we look for newer current books that are in very good condition (i.e. free of: rips, stains, cracked spines, water damage, mustiness, mildew or any bad odors). Please understand that we only take books we can use. This is a guideline and we may offer more or less for a book depending on its condition. 


Using Your Book Credits:

When you are ready to purchase books you can apply up to fifty percent (50%) in book credits towards your purchase. For instance if your purchase comes to $50.00 before tax you can apply up to $25.00 in book credits. If you purchase $10.00 before tax you can apply up to $5.00 in book credits and so on. All unused book credits will be kept on file in our system to be used at another visit. 

Book credits can only be used for instore purchases.

Book credits never expire and will remain on file in our system until fully used.

Note: Some Local & Collectible Books and any special sale items (like ‘Blind Dates’ or 10 for $10.00 discount books) may be exempt from Credit use.  Book Credits cannot  be used on new books.

*Book Credits can only be used on Books.  They cannot be used on baskets, bookmarks or tote bags.  Blind Date books and 10 for $10.00 discounts are already set a specialty rate and are exempt from Credit use.
