The Swallow's Nest


We opened our bookstore in 2000 with the help of family and friends.  We loved books and reading and desired to offer the public an outlet for their previously-read books and a place to purchase books at a reduced price.   We have both paperback and hardcover books.
We also love coffee, so it always smells delicious here. Please come and enjoy a hot cup of coffee while browsing for books!
