Gift Certificates are available for any amount, never expire and are
good on all books & merchandise in our store. All Gift Certificates are
written by hand. Gift Certificates of $25 or higher value come in a
beautiful sleeve of handmade paper embedded with wildflower seeds, which
can be planted in a sunny spot.

of used, rare & out-of-print books on two floors. You can find
everything from paperback Mysteries to SIGNED First Editions,
Leather bound books, Scholarly Non-Fiction, Cookbooks,
Children's Books & much more. We're in downtown Lincoln
- just a few blocks from the University of Nebraska
- Come explore our labyrinth of books! Our staff is friendly,
knowledgeable and will help you find books you'll love. Eddy &
Charlie, our feline staffers, are likely to be lounging on the rugs or
sleeping in the windows.

addition to new carpet and some new shelving, we are also
getting energy-efficient lighting throughout our lower level. In
2020, we'll be able to see especially well! :)
