The Book Barn reopened

on the 20th of May!


Please read below,

as it contains information that will make your return to the Book Barn entirely free of disappointment, heedless recrimination, and existential crisis.


See below for info on selling books to the Book Barn as well.

Used Books

Due to conditions during the pandemic which do not allow for full occupancy of the Barn shops, our usual end-of-January sale will need to be POSTPONED.  Notice we say postponed rather than cancelled; the sale will take place, we're just not sure when; the date will depend on how soon we'll be able to accommodate full capacity.   Keep your eyes on our website and our Facebook page for further announcements.

The New Normal

Please be conscious that there will be some necessary differences in your visit due to the ongoing pandemic; these are being instituted for your safety as well as ours.  We ask that people practice patience in the face of the inconveniences.


  • Our new hours are 11.00 a.m. to 6.00 p.m., seven days a week.

  • State rules require that the property stays at 50% occupancy or less.  That means  there may be some waiting involved, please be patient.   

  • Please observe a six-foot distance between you and the other browsers.

  • MASKS will be required for EVERYONE except for children under three.  Please wear your mask at all times.

  • For our customers who are medically unable to wear a mask, we are offering curbside pickup.

  • Every child should be accompanied by an adult of eighteen years or older. 

  • The entire Barn property, the parking lot included, will be a no-smoking, no-vaping zone.

  •  No food or drink on the Barn property at this time.  For the moment we will not be offering coffee or snacks.  (Sigh.  We hate this part too.)

  •  Please bring your own bags for shopping.


The New Deal On Selling Us Books
