Welcome to Oakley's gently used books


  Please come in and leisurely browse through our clean, well-lighted selection of carefully chosen used books. Or, if you are in a hurry, just stop at the desk and tell us what you want. We know our books and can quickly tell you if we have the book that you are looking for. If it is easier, just call or email and we will let you know if we have your book in stock.

15,000 hand-selected used books

Our knowledgeable staff can help guide your selection based on your interests or needs. 

At Oakley's Gently Used books, you'll find:

  • well organized shelves for easy browsing,
  • knowledgeable staff to serve you, and
  • questions and inquiries are welcome.

We selectively buy books for cash or store credit - you decide. You receive twice the value in store credit or you can choose cash. Since we can only buy the best books for our customers, books must be in excellent condition and of special interest.

 Currently we are looking for early readers(steps 1-4) and board books for children in salable condition.

 We can not buy books until we examine them, therefore pictures or lists of books aren't useful to us. No          romances or text books, please. 

Award winning titles and authors are generally desirable. Call us to find out if the books you want to sell are    suitable for our inventory and to make sure the book buyer will be available.   434-977-3313
