Another Turn Used Books LLC
Another Turn Used Books LLC is run by the husband-and-wife team of Samuel and Debra Polen, residents of Gilbertsville, Pennsylvania, who homeschooled their son Stephen for all thirteen years of his primary and secondary education (kindergarten through 12th grade).
Once Stephen finished high school, we had lots of educational material that could be reused, and we concluded there were others who needed help in reselling their items as well. We also have a long history of volunteering for non-profit organizations and found that raising money takes precious time away from their principal focus. We thought we could help both individuals and organizations and at the same time provide a small income for ourselves in these trying economic times.
Our desire is to provide quality, personalized customer service while specializing in a rich assortment of gently-used books, textbooks, and educational toys and aids for the benefit of avid readers, homeschoolers, teachers, and students.
