Exchange: Books for Cash

If you’ve ever tried selling an old textbook before, you know that it can be a lot of work to advertise, get a good price, and meet up with a stranger to push your wares! Worry not! Dictum Society is kicking off semester one by doing all that for you!

If you are a member, we are happy to take on this task on your behalf for free! If you are not a member, we will charge a one-off $8 administration fee which entitles you to sell as many books as you like. It is worth considering signing up as a member – it is only an extra $2 – and will give you access to more benefits throughout the year. 

Exchange: Books for Books

The Dictum Society Book Exchange also gives you an opportunity get rid of and discover new books! For a gold coin donation, drop off as many books as you like in exchange for other books donated by other students.

How to Sign Up

Interested? Register online as a participant by completing the form.

After that, drop off all your books you want to sell, and all the books you're happy to swap, at the Dictum Society office (ROBL08, basement level, City Queen campus) between 17-21 July, 9AM-5PM.

Then attend the book sale from 24-26 July between 10:30 and 4:30 in the main Queen campus courtyard.
