Upon stepping into our store, you'll find aisle after aisle of scrupulously collected books treating a broad variety of subjects.

We keep large section in the front of our store for titles by local authors and independent publishers.The mezzanine is home to our collection of modern first editions, Black History, and Judaica. Shelves of CDs and vinyls are at the foot of the stairs for our music lovers. In the basement you'll find a broad range of non-fiction works, as well as science fiction and mysteries. The piano on our main floor is available for our (skilled) customers to play. There is something here for everyone. Whether you have a few hours or just a few minutes to browse, Dunaway Books is designed to be an intellectually and creatively stimulating place for the scholar, the collector, and the good old-fashioned voracious reader.
