Hey Bookworms! Did You Know About the Largest Bookstore in Connecticut?
Snow season is officially here and if you're not keen to go snowboarding or take a ride on the bunny hill or do a little ice fishing, you're probably like the rest of us and want nothing more than to be snuggled up near a warm cozy fire at your home sweet home. Even better, for some, is to be under a blanket, one hand clutching some hot cocoa and the other holding a book being whisked away to some magical kingdom.
When the snow subsides, you folks may want to take a ride over to The Book Barn in Niantic. According to their website, the Book Barn boasts more than 500,000 Books for sale! That's a lot of recycled trees!
Their enterprise has so many books they have three stores nestled closely near one another, less than two minutes by the looks of it. Their motto is "Used Books for Everyone," and they mean that everyone can afford a trip to the Book Barn and they have new stock arriving all the time. Check out our handy dandy little map below for specifics.
Here's what some patrons of The Book Barn have to say on Google reviews.
A wonderful selection of used books, and a great vibe. The staff are all amazing. They decorate the outside areas for holidays and have cats and goats on site. A great place to go treasure hunting. ~ Theo
Amazing place to browse and find hidden gems. Several buildings with everything you'd want in a used book destination. ~ Andrew
Magical place for book lovers, books for everyone at amazing prices, even CD's for a dollar. Great and amazing staff and atmosphere. If you love books, and have dreamt of dying and waking up surrounded by books, this is what it will look like. Very kid friendly, a place to spend hours at....~ Chef Enrique
Phenomenal selection of books, very friendly staff, and sweet cats. What else could you ask for?! We have already planned our next visit. ~ Virginia
A little elf just told me that the big guy himself, Santa, will be there at the main barn store on Saturday, December 17th from 6 to 8 with refreshments served and admission is free. The Book Barn is only closed on Thanksgiving and Christmas, so they are probably open as you are reading this, 11 to 6 daily.
