The Galleries & Bookstore at Library Square feature a bookstore that sells gently-read books generously donated by patrons in the Central Arkansas community, plus new books by Arkansas authors and publishers. You’ll also find a variety of literary-themed merchandise and gifts.

Categories of books include (but are not limited to) literary fiction, mystery, science fiction/fantasy, history, religion, philosophy, psychology, and cultural studies, as well as children’s and young adult titles—all averaging around $3-$8 per copy. If you love the hunt for a good treasure, check out our signed book section as well as our “old and odd” section for some unique finds! And for the discerning reader looking for a one-of-a-kind book, check out our premium selection that is searchable and available only online (prices are generally $25+):

Not sure what to get for that special someone who loves books? We have refillable gift cards available in any denomination that can be used for books or merchandise in the bookstore, as well as for art in the galleries.

If you’re an Arkansas author and you’d like to have your book considered for sale in our store, please send an email to librarybookstore@cals.org.
