Lightly Loved Book Credit Policy
We take Lightly Loved Books.
You will receive 15% of the Lightly Loved Book's value in trade credit.
The book's value is defined as the price A Likely Story can charge for the book.
For example, a customer brings in a hardback book and we price the book at $6.00. The customer's credit would
be $.90 (15% of $6.00).To use trade credit, they may use up to 50% of the price of another book.
An example would be if they purchased a book for $5.00, they may then use up to $2.50 in trade credit towards
that book. The remaining half must be paid by cash, check or charge.
Trade credit records are the responsibility of the customer.
Store credit expires after 12 months of date isssued.
We accept lightly loved both fiction and nonfiction in hardcover and paperback. As a general rule, we do
not take magazines, encyclopedia sets, textbooks, manuals, yearly dated books(i.e. World Almanacs),
books with outdated information (i.e. computer/finance)or Reader's Digest condensed books.We do not
accept any books that have highlighting, underlining, writing, water damage,
yellowed pages, visible mold, smoke or musty smells.
There will probably be some books that we cannot use. This may be because of condition or simply because we already have multiple copies of the particular title.
Concerning the books that we cannot use, you have two options.
1. You can take them back. *We ask that you pick up the books we cannot use as soon as possible
after we call, as we do not have space to store them for any length of time. If you cannot pick up the
books to be returned within 1 week of our initial call, we will be forced to donate them for you.
2. We can donate them. *We donate books we cannot use to several different charitable organizations.
We currently donate to Ruth's House Woman & Children's shelter, Linwood Center School and several hospitals.
Please, only 1 bag/box of books at a time. You can bring them in anytime we are open, but we will not be able to
go through the books while you wait. We only have a few staff members qualified for used books and we will get to
your books within 3 days of drop off.
