A series of posts about places where you can buy, borrow or donate books in and around our amazing neighborhood. 

On Knott Street, in what used to be the Albina Library back in 1912, sits The Title Wave Used Bookstore.  In 1988 Title Wave opened its doors selling discard books from Multnomah County Library’s collection. With an ever-changing inventory, there are 20,000 used books, audio books, CDs, DVDs and magazines to browse through.  With bargain prices that start at $2 for hardback novels and some items only setting you back $.25, anyone can find something that they need to complement their home library or to satisfy that literary fix.  They have great selection of children’s book as well as large print items.  As an added bonus, all educators receive a 25 percent discount every day by just presenting a valid educator ID. If those prices aren’t enough of an enticement, there are special markdowns every Wednesday.  All proceeds go back to the Multnomah County Library.
