Coas Books is New Mexico’s largest second-hand bookstore with more than 500,000 books in stock! We have an incredible selection of new and used books — including regional and out-of-print books —, CDs, DVDs, Vinyl, VHS, audio books, and games. Coas Books is family owned and operated, with two stores located in Las Cruces, New Mexico. We receive hundreds of books every day, so our inventory is constantly changing and full of hidden gems! Come by our store on Main Street — or our branch store on Solano — and we’ll be happy to help you find what you’re looking for! We also offer trade credit to help you save more on your purchases. Bring in the books you no longer want or need and we’ll give you trade credit that can be applied to your purchase of other used books and media in our stores.

Excellent used bookstore in the downtown area with many good books and friendly staff. I was able to find some children's books in French for my class.

This book store is downtown and is very large. They have an excellent selection of used books and some new books mostly by local writers. Very close of a good Mexican restaurant - Rosie's.
