Powell's Books allows you to sell your used books to it. The bookstore seeks large and specialized book collections -- and it especially values scholarly and other high-quality books. Powell's Books purchases library donations, bookstore inventories and personal libraries.
For collections of 500 books or more, it may arrange to have the books shipped for evaluation. If your collection is especially large (a bookstore inventory or private collection of approximately 10,000 books or more) and you’re located in the U.S., Powell's Books may be able to send their buyers directly to you. For those with collections of fewer than 500 books, you can use the online buyback service on the Powell's Books website.
