Still have books from the Spring Semester you want to sell?We’re buying books for cash from 8:00 am to 4:30 pm weekdays on the patio outside the Bookstore. Visit us anytime from Monday, August 31st through Friday, September 4th.
Recycling your textbooks by selling them is good for the environment and lowers the price of textbooks for everyone! While the best time to sell your books is during exam week each December and May, the UVM Bookstore does buy back textbooks weekdays from 8:00 am to 4:30 pm. Please bring any books you want to sell to the Customer Service counter on the 3rd Floor of the Bookstore. If the books are being used here, the Bookstore will pay top value for them. If the Bookstore doesn't have a requisition from a professor for that title, then a used book wholesaler may buy the books so they can be used at other colleges and universities throughout the country. These books are valued at up to 1/3 of the new textbook price and are based on national supply and demand.
Please keep in mind, many books now include a CD or other inserts. It is a good idea to bring the inserts with the books because the value may be significantly lower without these inserts. We can buy certain loose leaf books, as well as books purchased from places other than the UVM Bookstore. You do not need a receipt to sell your books. Please remember to not sell any books you may have rented and still need to return.
Payment cannot be issued for a book that is deemed counterfeit. Per sanctioned procedure, the book will be sent to the publisher to verify authenticity and will not be available to be returned to you. For further information, please reference Educational Publishers Enforcement Group (EPEG) Anti-Counterfeit Best Practices, which can be found at stopcounterfeitbooks.com/best-practices.
