Used Books at Flyleaf

In addition to our new books, Flyleaf offers a curated selection of used books for adults and kids! Our adult used book room is stocked with paperback fiction, mystery, science fiction and fantasy, and a large range of non-fiction genres. The used kids' room includes young adult, middle grade, early chapter books, graphic novels, picture books in hardcover and paperback, and board books. We encourage our customers to browse the used rooms for unique finds at bargain prices!

WHAT TO DO WITH WHAT WE DON’T TAKE:

You can donate children’s and young adult books to Book Harvest--we have a drop-off bin here at Flyleaf. You can also donate any books to PTA Thrift Shop in Carrboro or Friends of the Chapel Hill Public Library shop in Chapel Hill. Both of these locations can give you a tax receipt.
