ABOUT THE FAMILY BOOK SHOP

The Family Book Shop has been a staple of DeLand's community for over 35 years. The deceptively large building holds over 300,000 books spread over 6,000 square feet. The store has evolved and grown over the years and through different owners, but is proud to continue as a independent bookstore serving the reading community of Florida! 

The Family Book Shop is a proud member of the Southern Independent Bookstore Alliance (SIBA)

TRADE POLICIES

  • The Family Book Shop offers a trade system for used books. This is a credit system, not cash. We do not buy books for cash

  • If you bring used books in, we offer trade credit based on the age and condition of the book, as well as if we already have an excess of the title. 

  • The trade credit that you have is only good towards the purchase of used books, and may be used to reduce the cost of used books by half. For example, if you have $10 in trade credit, and a book you want is $12, you would use $6 in credit and only pay $6 plus tax for the book, leaving you with $4 credit for your next visit! 

  • Trade credit cannot be used on new books, magazines or other new items.

  • The only record of the trade credit is your green card - please don't lose it! 

  • Currently we accept trade on any day we are open, but we ask that if you have a  large amount of items that you call ahead and discuss with a staff member the best time to drop off your items.

  • Any items we cannot accept or already have excess of can either be returned to you, or donated onward!
