  • This place is SO cool!!! It has a bunch of buildings, all with themes and music and thousands of used books for sale. There is a little animal area with goats and the kitties were hiding somewhere. The perennial flower gardens surrounding the entire pkace are amazing with fish ponds, fountains, all kinds of garden statues including gargoyles and fairies. And there's also 2 play areas fir little ones with swings, climbing house, little tykes cars and tots etc. And a basketball hoop. No charges for parking or admission and plenty if staff to answer questions. Cool place if you like books!
  • A paradise for book lovers; I could stay here all day, basking in the literary variety and petting all the cats. One of my favorite places in New England! Thank you Book Barn!
  • This place is amazing. I have been going since I was a small child and am still just as impressed with the huge selection. Great stop for a sunny day.
  • For book lovers of all ages. A funky main building and sprawling campus full of used books, with multiple satellite buildings elsewhere in town. Buy a mass market novel, a niche cookbook, a wonderful children's book, a rare edition perhaps, nonfiction, so much more. Browsing welcome. They also buy used books.
  • Great place! Love all the books intertwined with gardens, places to sit, and animals. 2nd hand books at a discount are amazing.
