I am looking for a specific book or movie – can you tell me if you have it in stock?

We do not have a live inventory, as that is impossible to maintain with 100% accuracy with the turnover and quantity of items we have, often with only one copy per title. We can tell you if it has come in before, and where it was shelved, to assist you in locating it.

We can offer a Book Request for up to three titles. If that title does come in within the next 30 days, the system will flag it for us and we will contact you via text or email that it is available. We can hold these items for up to three days.

We can also offer a Book Search for up to three titles of books, movies, or games. Email with the title (and author if known). Please limit requests to three titles once per household per day. Email inquiries are generally answered within 2-3 business days. We will search and email back to let you know if we found it or not. If located, we will place it on hold for you for up to three days, after which point, it will be shelved for sale. If not located, we will reply to let you know and ask if you’d like to submit a Book Request (a.k.a. you are happy to wait for up to 30 days to see if it comes in), or if you’d like to purchase it new from

Please note that due to volume and staffing constraints, we are unable to provide shelf checks for CDs, comic books, preschool books, and audio books.

Browsing is always more fun, but do let us know if we can help you at
