About Forget-Me-Not Books
Forget-Me-Not Books is a beautifully unique, used bookstore that was established as a component of the Literacy Council of Alaska’s Book Recycling Program in February 2005. We are staffed, primarily, by a team of dedicated volunteers. These committed community members selflessly donate their time to clean, sort and shelve the books.
Our books come entirely from local donations and all proceeds go directly to help fund the programs of the Literacy Council. We have over 40,000 books on our shelves in a broad selection of genres. Forget-Me-Not Books offers excellent daily and weekly sales on our stock... so keep posted for new deals!
Pricing and Selection
There are approximately 40,000 books on our shelves at any one time and are shelved in customer convenient sections: Children’s, Fiction, Vintage, Non-Fiction and Alaskana. In each of the sections there are a number of sub-categories. Feel free to ask an employee for help at any time.
The majority of children’s books are .50¢ each, including home schooling texts and other teaching resources.
In both fiction and non-fiction, most adult books are $2.00. Staff picks, new releases and special interest books and are priced at ¼ of the cover price. Vintage books are priced at the low end of the scale for Internet database research.
