When we last checked, there were TWO other thrift stores on
that we are aware of who might be accepting used books:
Tottenville Thrift Shop
223 Main Street, SI, NY 10307.
Call first to make sure they are open, their hours are limited.
Bay Street Thrift
1090 Bay Street, SI, NY 10305
Call first. They don't want large quantities, but one box or so is fine.
Also consider these options:
