Book Barn Downtown

Even with all the buildings we have on the main campus, we eventually ran out of space. Books, books, books...everywhere. Piled on the floors. Piled between the bookcases. Jammed sideways on the shelves. It was getting ugly.


So we cast far and wide, and were lucky enough to find a place less than a mile from the Main Barn, and BOOK BARN DOWNTOWN was created.


Come visit us at 269 Main Street!
