Description: Book-lovers' Heaven! Used books by the 350 thousands. They buy and sell quality books and you can't help walk away with at least one bag of treasures. The different genres are located in several small buildings on this book farm. Just a couple of miles away is the downtown location stocking even more unique genres and one must visit this location as an integral part of any visit to the Book Barn.

There are also an assortment of slow-moving (well, usually half-asleep) dogs and cats draped over various bookshelves and rugs. Adds a bit of class, don't you think?

From their website: The primary mission of The Book Barn is, of course, to serve as a provider of books, uniting people and books together in biblioholic bliss.

Visit their website to get a much better concept of what this place looks like and what it's all about.

Comment wall

I went to college near The Book Barn. It became a favorite destination for me and my friends. It's a used book store, but much more. There are a half dozen buildings (each dedicated to a genre), playgrounds for children, a basketball hoop, tables with giant chess boards, a paddock with goats, more than a dozen cats you will find roaming the property. Oh, and they offer free coffee and donuts. It's a destination for a day trip.
