Frequently Asked Questions

Do you sell used books?

Yes, most of our books are used. But don’t confuse used with old, we have used books that were recently published.

Do you sell new books?

Yes, we do have new books. And bonus – we sell our new books at a discount of 10% or more.

Do you have parking?

Yes! We have seven spots that are specifically for our customers. These spots are located in the lot next to our building. There is also street parking on Williams Street. If those spots are full, please call the store and we can give you other alternatives.

Are you Joe?

No. Joe is Mary’s brother who passed away in 1999. He loved reading & adult beverages. When Mary & Alix were thinking about names for the bookstore, Alix said to Mary “You know who would really love this place? Joe.” And just like that Joe’s Place had its name.

Do you have {insert title of the book you’re looking for here}?

We do not keep an inventory of our used books in our system, so we cannot say for certain whether we have a particular used book. But if you come in the store, we’re happy to point you to the section the book would be in if we had it.

Do you sell textbooks?

No, we do not sell textbooks.

Do you buy used books?

No, but we gladly take donations. If you have a large collection, please send an email to us with details about your collection (number of books, genres, condition of books, copyright dates, & any other info you think we should know).

I’m an author. Will you carry my book?

Right now we are NOT accepting any new authors on consignment.

Can I host my book club (writing circle, meet-up group, etc.) at Joe’s Place?

In short – yes! We enjoy having different groups meet at our store.  There is a cost associated with holding your event at the store and it varies depending on your group size and when you would like to meet. Please email us with the details of your event (date, time, group size) and we’ll be happy to help!
