  • All of the book barn locations are great! The main barn is by far the coolest though. The gardens are so cute and fun to walk around in, especially at night! Everything is fun down to the signage. Pri...  more »

  • The most unique bookstore experiences I have seen. Huge selection organized in a unique and adventurous way complete with a guide map and guidebook to the cats. Really good prices for paperbacks and hardbacks. If you love books or are looking for a deal on used books, check this place out. I would start at the main barn then work your way to the other stores.
  • There are four different locations for Book Barn. There is the main store which is the original Barn. You can sell your books there and receive a check or credit as payment. The store opens at 9 AM but the book buying starts at 11 AM. The main store has art books on the main level, history in the basement and self help and social sciences on the upper floor. It also has various out buildings with fiction, poetry and mystery books. There is outdoor seating with game tables and a penned in area with live goats and sheep and other animals. Fun for kids To the east if the main store is a bookstore with reference, writing, foreign language, sports, environment, energy, travel with business and military history upstairs. Then in downtown Niantic there are two other bookstores, one with religion, film, theatre, cooking, sciences and the other has crafts, children's book and mystery books. The last weekend in January they have 30 percent off sale so you can bring your books in to get a store credit for them and acquire lots of books at a discount. This is a lovely oasis for book lovers to get away from the cares and worries of today's world. Enjoy.
  • There is such charm that comes with the open outdoor campus of books that is the book barn. They have friendly staff who seem constantly busy, that are willing to put a pause on their tasks and lend a hand or answer a question. The resident cats were also super soft and friendly. If you don't find what you need they also have sister stores within walking distance. A must visit for anyone keen on books. Immense selection with the best prices, and they buy used books.
  • THOUSANDS OF BOOKS!!! Any book you can possibly imagine!! This nostalgic book barn has many things to offer, including some friendly cats and a few goats that you can treat with some snacks! Anything from drama, teen, horror...not sure just ask!! Staff are friendly and very helpful! Books are always being traded, sold and donated so there are always different books available! Big chess board, kids play area, mazes and and all around family environment! You can always count on them to decorate according to season/holiday! It’s nice to step out of the world of technology and sit down and relax with a good book!! πŸ‘πŸΌπŸ“šπŸ“–
