This Enormous Warehouse Of Used Books In New York Will Be Your New Favorite Destination
Uncovering hidden gems in New York is one of our favorite things to do, often visiting wonderful places like
Found In Ithaca where you can spend all day thrifting through nostalgic goodies. But if you’re looking for a different kind of treasure hunting, we’ve found an enormous barn in Upstate New York that’s filled with books that are just waiting to be taken home with you. Ready to fill up those empty spaces on your shelves? Because it’s impossible to walk out of the Saratoga Book Warehouse empty-handed.
Head up to Saratoga Springs and make your way down an old gravel road to discover an enormous barn filled with an endless supply of books.
The Saratoga Book Warehouse has been open since 2012, becoming a local paradise for anyone interested in diving into the deep collection of books that are housed here.
But unlike other book warehouses, the Saratoga Book Warehouse operates without an actual staff and on an honor system where you hold your books up to a camera before putting your money into a lockbox and heading on your merry way.
And did we forget to mention the best part? Books here at the Saratoga Book Warehouse are only $1 dollar each!
As you make your way through the barn, you'll find attached rooms and connected buildings built off of each other - creating a sort of fun house of books for you to make your way through.
While some rooms have books sorted by genre, part of the fun of visiting this huge warehouse is that you'll have to do some treasure hunting and dig through all these books to see what's really here.
Open every day of the week from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., bring cash and exact change to take home some amazing reads for just $1 dollar!
The Saratoga Book Warehouse may be set back from the road and quite literally off of the beaten path, but that doesn't mean it'll be tricky to find! Once you get near the road you'll begin to see signs that point you in the direction of the books. To find out more about the Saratoga Book Warehouse, check out their official Facebook page
