They are located in the smaller building that shares the courtyard at Village Gate, along with Mood Makers. —DanDangler

(Note: Also a great place to offload unneeded books as long as they are in saleable condition!)

The price variations are because all the volunteers do pricing and everyone has his/her own ideas. If you think a price is way too high, you can always ask. They will either negotiate or explain why. —VolneySimmons
