Ellis Island

The story behind the name...

Mr. Book Barn and his cohorts buy books here seven days a week, 363 days a year.


Named after the American landmark, Ellis Island is our book immigration station, where we buy and sort new arrivals. During the summer months we take in an estimated eight to ten thousand books a week. Ellis is located just inside the parking lot.


Many of our customers stop at Ellis to browse the new arrivals and never get any further.

You'll find these subjects in Ellis Island:

Ellis Island is home to many New Arrivals, and has special sections for New Releases and Classic Literature.
