Browse. Relax. Enjoy. Black River Books.

 

Welcome to Black River Books, an independently owned and operated quality used bookstore, designed to offer a pleasant browsing experience in a relaxed atmosphere. Over 40 thousand books occupying over 2000 square feet of space and covering a broad range of subjects are arranged on well-labeled shelves. Two walls of windows bring in plenty of natural light. Comfortable chairs afford a place to relax, enjoy a cup of coffee, tea or cocoa, or to examine possible purchases. Black River Books welcomes children with a room furnished for them. This room also houses the cooking and gardening books, so moms or dads can browse while the little ones are entertained.


 

Although we are primarily used, we do carry some new books: a selection of Michigan books, children's books and books with a local connection, either through topic, author or illustrator.

We, Dick and Pam, welcome you to Black River Books. We hope you find our store a comfortable place to hunt for a special book for yourself, a friend or a family member. Perhaps it's also a place to meet a friend or find a new one. Sometimes it's a place to get a dog fix from our resident Labradoodles. Whatever brings you to our store, we hope you enjoy your visit, tell your friends about us and come again.
