The Keene location has moved from the Colony Mill (now essentially a dead mall); another branch is in Peterborough. Don't miss their periodic sales, when they have good deals on used books.

This is an independent bookstore with both new and used books. There are readings here, though we haven't gone yet and lots of information about events in the area. I have found some enjoyable bargains and best sellers.

Old fashioned independently owned book store. Friendly staff that is eager to help. Large selection of titles and used books also. If you are a book lover this is a place for you to visit.
