“It does have a few good books...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013

It does have a few books but be well prepared to spend lot$ on anything worth owning. A couple books I was interested in weren't for sale, apparently reference material. It would be way down "my must visit while in Juneau" list.

“Great Books”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

This is a wonderful store to find Older books about Alaska, and the owner is very well informed on all things Alaska, including politics, and local character.

“Observatory Books”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2013

Your standard overstuffed, funky book store with a good section of Alaska specific books. A place to spend a while and search for that special find. Lots of little cubbies and rooms to explore on a rainy day.
