Welcome to The Book Barn, located in the building which, in 1856, housed the first funeral parlor in the state of Kansas. Our customers have been dying to get in ever since!
Whether it's top quality childrens' books, fascinating regional titles and information, or knowledgeble conversation, you'll find it all here. We are a one-stop-book-shop with used books as well as discounted new books.
We order books every Tuesday and have them in by Wednesday or Thursday, depending on UPS and distributor availability.
Need the perfect gift? Just ask and we'll be glad to offer suggestions. We're especially good at advising on gifts for children and teachers, but we're not bad at recommending for husbands and wives, too.
Attend our exciting, nationally & state award-winning cultural and author-signing events. We feature live music, poetry readings, and children's educational events. Go to our Upcoming Events or our Past Events pages.

We are a dog-friendly store. We welcome visiting canines (free doggy treats) and even had two dogs on staff who acted as official greeters, Yellow Labs Flint (white) and Tucker (Flint almost made it to his 14th birthday, but passed on three years ago). Here they are all decked out for St. Patrick's Day. Tucker has been certified for Human/Animal bond work.
