We are located in historic Brownville Nebraska. We specialize in used and rare books with topics that include - epistemology, religion, fiction (all kinds), non-fiction, psychology, foriegn language,  religious/ spiritual books, and history.  

    We have around 150,000 books so there is plenty to go through.  Our areas of expertise include foriegn language books; French, German, and Spanish (these I have listed as the owner speaks all three fluently);  cinema books, and fiction which is arranged alphabetically for titles that would fit onto the shelves. The rest can be found on tables and nooks and crannies! 

 In 2004, Brownville became part of the Booktown movement when it was named one of only three official Booktowns in the United States.  The name of this group is the International Organization of Book Towns—a loose affiliation of rural towns around the world that nurtures bibliophiles and encourages economic development by becoming a haven for bookshops and a heaven for book lovers.

The movement was started by British bookstore owner Richard Booth of Hay-on-Wye, Wales. As the world’s largest second-hand book dealer, Booth wanted to encourage the recycling of used books through reasonable pricing.
    A true bibliophile’s paradise, Brownville is now home to 3 other outstanding bookstores.
