The reason this store has survived for over 20 years is the unique character and variety of their used books, CDs & vinyl. The staff's knowledge of their stock is amazing, and always friendly. It's the kind of store you visit & end up spending 2 hours browsing the incredible range of books. And talk about savings over the big new book stores! There are quirky corners, seats for readers, vintage postcards, and a section of new books on local hiking, history, geology. There are gift certificates available, an appreciated gift for anyone. Good section of gently used children's books. Parking is easy in the municipal lot across the street. I'm a regular customer, and found there are 'regulars' who travel there from miles around.

We made the trip from Brooklyn to Peekskill to go to this bookstore. Once we were in the town it was easy to find. The store is a great example of a used bookstore. It had a large selection of books in many categories, including many unusual titles. There was a large selection of used children's books.The ambiance was conducive to browsing because this a classic old time used book store. The service was friendly and accommodating. We would definitely visit again.
