Come in, browse and feel at home! We accept books for store credit or cash. We value the trade-ins based on factors such as condition of the book, popularity of the title, author, or topic, current inventory, and market value. We are selective! We will not accept every book that is offered. And you are under no obligation to accept our trade-in/cash offer. This ensures that we maintain a good inventory of quality used books and you feel that you receive good value for your trade-in. If we don't have a book that you want, we can get it quickly.

Ernest & Hadley Booksellers strives to provide a unique selection of books and other creative materials from local, regional, and international sources. We seek the input of community members who have a deep love of books and wish to share that passion with others. With a village approach, we provide space for book clubs to meet, authors to hold book signings, and artists to exhibit their craft, as all are essential to our purpose. The store’s namesakes are Ernest Hemingway and his first wife, Hadley Richardson. On a recent New Year’s visit to Paris, store owners Easty and Ian visited one of Hemingways’ early 20th-century residences in the Latin Quarter, which provided the inspiration for the store name. Fast forward to August and the store location was found and the store manager, Avery, hired.
