My visit was within the past month of this post. Unfortunately, I don't have a photo at this time. No matter- the bookstore is adorable and charming. The staff were friendly and helpful. I will return soon to purchase a used book!

Barner Books is a really nice used book store. They also carry some new books and an interesting assortment of gift items. You're most likely to find something in there you won't leave without.

I was really impressed by this bookstore. The selection here feels very carefully curated. When I went to look for books on a desired subject, everything there was reputable and high quality. There were even some impressive works from authors I'd never heard of before. They had antique typewriters and beautiful journals for sale (cloth-covered, paperback, and leather-bound). The floorboards were a bit creaky but not overly so (so it was charming, not concerning).There were very many shelves, but there was enough room to stand and walk around comfortably. There were chairs scattered throughout the store to sit in (though, it was more for a quick sit while looking than a place to lounge). Overall, I really loved my time here. I was very satisfied with the books I got and the atmosphere while I was there. The staff and fellow customers seemed to all have good spirits and were pleasant to be around. I'd highly recommend this place for a visit!
