Need a book but short on cash?  Try Better World Books – they’re kinda’ like amazon, but they specialize in used books.

Better yet, borrow books for free from the library!  Search our catalog using the handy widget on our website.  If we don’t have the book you need, then we can probably get it for you from another library.  And you won’t have to pay for shipping!

Search our catalog for the book you've gotta have!
