Second Hand Books
In ancient times when the writing system was created, almost everything was used for writing: stone, clay, tree bark. With the improvement of press and printing techniques, books became more common and accessible to readers. Nowadays, when e-books are overflowing the market, it may seem that the print book has lost its meaning and purpose. But it is far from that. Some even reach a million copies.
The Green Shed Canberra is, among other things, a second hand book store. If you want to donate your used books, you are more than welcome to give them to The Green Shed. We also accept all well preserved and undamaged old books. Why send them to the landfill when they can be of use to someone else? Bring them to either the Mugga Lane Resource Management Centre in Symonston or the Flemington Road Resource Management Centre in Mitchell. We also offer a pick-up service for bulky goods meaning you can have your books collected from your residence within the Canberra area. This service is free to some concession card holders.
We also sell an extensive collection of second hand books at affordable prices and in good condition. If you are looking for specific titles, feel free to contact us and make an inquiry. Our employees will be more than happy to help you. You may also visit our store and search for your desired book directly, or just browse our collection. We are sure you will find what you are looking for among our cheap second hand books.
