Book Extravaganza If you love books, this truly is the place for you. The space is so enormous that several visits will be needed to browse through all the books. Books are categorized. There are looks of nooks and crannies in this old barn. A very fun experience.

Great way to spend an afternoon Go prepared to spend a lot of time browsing! This is an amazing barn full of books! You can find all kinds of books here, and will likely leave with arms loaded down with books.

My family has known the Baldwin family for at least 60 years, and the Book Barn has pretty much stayed the same all that time. I do miss the little candy counter though. Ben Bayliss.

Books and more books. Delightful space with a clean, well-organized inventory. I could spend hours here, and a lot of cash!

I love this place! The books are cheap and there is such a varied variety of subjects. Plus, if you are lucky, you may run into some barn cats!
