“Largest Used Book Store Outside New York!”

Books * Art * Music * Cafe * Community: Our shop has been voted "Simply the Best Independent Bookstore" for 9 years! We are located in a renovated 1920s theater next to Harrisburg's historic Broad Street Market, just a few blocks (1/4 mile) north of the Pennsylvania State Capitol.  We're honored to have been named one of "America's Great Independent Bookstores" and voted "Simply the Best" Independent Bookstore in the region for 9 years running.  Our internet warehouses stock over one million academic and general-interest books, while our retail bookstore-cafe has more than 100,000 used, rare, and sale-priced books on six floors in two connected buildings.  Thanks to special arrangements with several University presses, our shop features tens of thousands of discounted NONFICTION scholarly titles, including many not available for purchase anywhere online. Our FICTION wing and expanded Children's and YA sections opened in June 2012.  "Robinson's Rare Books and Art Prints" will celebrate its grand opening on our lower level on September 9, 2012.

Great spot in Harrisburg. They have a big collection of used books and a cafe where you can order coffee or a smoothie to enjoy while you read or work.

Great used art selection and a MASSIVE collection of scholarly and children's books. Even a cool cafe that fits very well with the atmosphere. Plenty of tables to bring your laptop and do work or actually read! Not too many reading nooks to snuggle up.
