The Book Barn
For any book lover The Book Barn in Niantic, CT is a must stop. With over 500,000 books in their ever changing collection spread across their four locations, The Book Barn is guaranteed to have the type of books you're looking for while delivering it in a non-conventional way. Their main campus consists of multiple buildings that all contain endless books(and a few cats).
Besides books and cats the main campus is also home to many gardens that they encourage guests to walk through and enjoy. Opening in 1988 The Book Barn is a journey in itself, allowing guests to go building by building exploring a new genre through each doorway.
They understand the importance of books to readers of any level so The Book Barn is open 363 days a year, with the store only being closed all of Thanksgiving and Christmas days. The other 363 days of the year you can visit them from 9am to 9pm every day of the week. Even someone with the busiest work schedule can still find time to browse the book lined shelves.
The Book Barn takes an old school brick-and-mortar, or cats-and-sheds approach as they like to say, when it comes to selling their books. Because of this they have no online store to purchase books from. Yes, you actually have to step into the store. We think it's better that way though. Why? Because The Book Barn isn't your average bookstore. Yes, you can leave with many great books to read, but it also gives you the experience that many large chain or conventional bookstores never could. Don't talk our word for it though, we highly suggest you go visit them to see what all the talk is about.
