After many years at 90 Pacolet Street, The Book Shelf moved to a new location in July 2011. We are now located at 94 North Trade Street in downtown Tryon, N.C. (right beside the coffee shop, A Better Deal and Cowan's Hardware).
The Book Shelf, a fixture in downtown Tryon, North Carolina, since 1952, offers national and regional bestsellers, an up-to-date children's section, unique cards and gifts, local authors, used books, and more. Our selection is expanding everyday. We provide friendly and helpful service as well as the best view from any bookstore in the Carolinas! We also have a comfortable reading nook to spend your afternoons enjoying good books and coffee.
