Looking for a book?

Smith Family Bookstore has over 500,000 used, new, and out-of-print books organized in hundreds of sections at the Willamette store. We also have thousands of used books, including textbooks, rare, and out-of-print books online at Abebooks.com.

We use skills and methods that booksellers have depended on for centuries: knowledge, memory, the alphabet, and footwork, as well as technology, information, and online tools. Our used books are always in good condition and priced fairly, and we work hard to fill our store with books for all kinds of readers and browsers.

People working at Smith Family Bookstore have decades of bookselling experience, and we are always interested in helping customers find books.

Visit us. If you are looking for a specific book, we will help you find it. If you are interested in a subject but have no particular book in mind, then coming in and browsing is the best plan.

Free and metered parking are available. Biking, walking, and public buses are also good options. An elevator makes our store fully accessible.

Call us.  (541) 343-4717. Tell us the title(s), and we will look for the book(s). We are happy to search for your books, hold books until you arrive, or mail books to your home or office.

Search online. About 10% of Smith Family Bookstore’s out-of-print, rare, and academic inventory and 100% of the store’s used textbook inventory is listed on Abebooks. com.

Online listings are only a small part of our store’s huge inventory. The majority of our books are only available at our Willamette store.

Textbooks. We sell used textbooks online at Abebooks.com. Our textbooks are often priced lower than other online sellers, and we only sell used texts in good condition. We often sell out of used textbooks because of our lower prices, and we encourage students to search early each term. Please use the links above to search for used textbooks in our inventory. These textbooks are not available at the Willamette store but can be ordered and delivered through Abebooks or placed on hold for purchase and pick up at our store.
