With a sigh of regret we announce that for the safety of the community and of our crew
we are following the state's recommendations as a non-essential business
and as of 6.00 p.m. on March 16th the Barn will be closed until further notice.
We will keep you updated via our website and Facebook pages.
Please stay safe and be well.
**News Flash! You may have heard about the Connecticut plastic bag tax...so...Beginning August 1st, 2019, the Book Barn will no longer provide plastic bags. We hope to reduce our impact on the environment, while at the same time, not add cost or additional confusion to our loyal customers. We apologize for any inconvenience, and, as always, invite you to bring in your own reusable bags, boxes, or totes. If you don't have a bag, don't worry, we got your back. We'll be selling reusable bags available at the cost of $1.25. Stop by our News section for pictures, or come visit and see them in person starting August 1st! **
