Bookstores are the heart and soul of communities. In his novel, American Gods, Neil Gaiman says, "What I say is, a town isn't a town without a bookstore. It may call itself a town, but unless it's got a bookstore it knows it's not fooling a soul."
At Second Time Around Books, we provide the community with not only a place to purchase books, but a place to go and talk about those books, interact with other readers, and plug into their community. Second Time Around Books is a bookstore with a purpose. All proceeds from Second Time Around Books fund our literacy programs. Because we are stocked by donations from the community, our selection is eclectic and includes novels, textbooks, biographies, and more. We believe that providing the community with access to affordable books is a part of our mission, and we keep our prices as low as possible.
Second Time Around Books is stocked through donations from the community.
We are thankful to generous readers like you who help us stock the bookstore. Your donations support us in our efforts to serve families in White County. As much as we love books, we cannot accept everything. Please observe the following guidelines:

Thank you for your cooperation as we work to make Second Time Around a bookstore that you will want to visit.
