Second Hand Book Services

UPDATE – PLEASE READ: Unfortunately, due to the ongoing health concerns of COVID-19, we have suspended the Second Hand Book Service for the 2020/2021 booklisting season.  For more information, please click here.

 Lilydale Books is a business that is strongly committed to recycling. We specialise in buying and selling second hand books. We are one of very few booksellers that offer our customers the combined service of purchasing new and second hand books.

Schools who conduct a second hand book sale through Parents and Friends or similar associations have found our service complements theirs. Lilydale Books can also assist in facilitating a second hand book sale at our partnering schools. Please let us know if this is something that would be of interest.



We acknowledge the educational book market is currently undergoing substantial changes as schools make the switch from traditional textbooks to blended learning. We offer schools a variety of options which can be tailored to support your schools digital programs.



As part of our services to schools, regular visits are made to the library to showcase new titles. Librarians can request books to inspect during these visits. Teachers and librarians can also request books on approval before purchasing. More information on our full service for libraries can be found here.
