TRADE PAPERBACK & GRAPHIC NOVEL RENTAL PROGRAM
We are in the midst of setting up a rental program for trades and graphic novels but we need your help to do it! If you are interested, start bringing your old graphic novels and other trade paperbacks into the store for credit towards rentals. They can be in any condition as long as they are READABLE.
Still ironing out all the details but the program is going to work like this: All you have to do is purchase a membership for $20, this starts you off with 8 points. You use these points to rent books, their point value being determined by the price of the book itself. You can purchase additional points or get them for free by attending events at the store or by spending a certain amount of money at the store. In addition, any books you bring in for the program will give you points to use towards rentals for yourself.
This is meant as a way to get you into books you wouldn't normally read or check out. To top it all off, any money you spend towards the rental of a book is deducted off the cost if you ultimately decide that you like it enough to purchase a brand new copy. So start getting those old books into the store!
