The Best Little Bookstore

by Candace Sommer


The generous nature of the Cashiers/Glenville community and a tireless crew of volunteers ensure that the Cashiers Library Bookstore is one for the books.


There’s a little jewel for the entire Cashiers/Glenville Community nestled within The Albert Carlton-Cashiers Community Library.

Albert Carlton-Cashiers Community Library houses the Best Little Bookstore in Cashiers.

Okay, the Library Bookstore may be the only bookstore in town, but we really think we are the best!

You’ll find thousands of gently-used books, three different fiction formats (hardcover, trade, mass market), extensive history, biography, self-help, health/diet and gardening/landscaping selections, hundreds of DVDs and CDs and audio books at the used bookstore tucked back inside the Cashiers Library. Library volunteers work very hard to keep the shelves stocked and organized for our customers. Most sell for under $5.

The Best Little Bookstore in Cashiers will begin monthly sales in January, featuring a different category/genre each month. We will begin in January – a time of New Year promises and self-improvement – by featuring self-help and relationship books. All books that fall in this category – hardback, paperback and trade - will sell for $1 every day during the month of January.

In February, the month of presidential and community leader birthdays, the Bookstore will feature biographies. Again, all books that fall in this category – hardback, paperback and trade – will sell for $1 every day during the month.

Best of all — all proceeds from the sale of the Best Little Bookstore merchandise go directly to support our Library inventory and services.

Beginning in January, The Best Little Bookstore will be holding monthly 50 percent off sales featuring different genres. These will include: Antiques/Art/Arts & Craft; Biography (including Presidents); Cookbooks and Diet; Health; Politics; Home Decorating/Home Improvement/Gardening/Landscaping; History; Sports; Self-Help/Reference; Travel; Christmas/holiday; Music CDs.

The Friends of the Library has two major means to raise funds to support the Library: annual memberships and used book and audio sales. The money raised goes directly to the Library so they can provide more books, more programs for children and adults, and more served free for everyone in the Cashiers community.

The Best Little Bookstore is open year-round during regular library hours. Stop by to shop anytime!
