Best Used Bookstore (Editors’ Pick)
Rockville’s Friends of the Library
The friendly smell of musty paper greets you as you stroll into Rockville’s Friends of the Library Bookstore. The wide, well-organized aisles are packed with gently used hardbacks and softcovers spanning the Dewey Decimal System. From sci-fi and self-help to poetry and politics and comic books and cookbooks, there’s something for everyone here. The extensive children’s section brims with offerings for younger bibliophiles, whether they’re learning their ABCs or wanting to devour the Hunger Games trilogy. Not in the mood for a good read? There are plenty of movies, CDs, video games, vintage postcards, board games and classic records to flip through. Best of all, proceeds from your purchases help fund Montgomery County public libraries.
