Browsers Corner Book Store

Set up like a traditional bookstore, Browsers Corner Book Store is organized by category in a 1,700-square-foot space. Inventory changes constantly, with volunteers removing books which haven’t been purchased in three months.

The used-materials supply sold in the bookstore depends entirely on community donations of books, magazines as well as audio and visual materials. Funds are then used to help purchase additional books, periodicals, art reproductions, technological equipment, furnishings and other materials as needed for the library. Gift cards are also available for purchase at the store (all funds are used to help support the library).

If your desired book escapes you at the store, feel free to shop AmazonSmile. Friends of the Carson City Library is listed as a charitable organization on, and our nonprofit will receive .5 percent of your purchase amount at checkout.
