The Dusty Bookshelf

The Dusty Bookshelf first opened inside a little storefront in Manhattan's Aggieville in 1985. Due to the kindness of many customer volunteers, The Dusty Bookshelf moved twice before finally settling in its current home on the corner of Manhattan and Moro in 1991.
The handmade shelves full of books occupy a building in Aggieville that has come full circle, beginning as a college co-op bookstore, then transforming into a men's clothing store, and finally housing a bookstore once more.

Now, with two locations in Northeast Kansas, we bring the warmth of a local bookstore to Aggieville in Manhattan and Mass St. in Downtown Lawrence.

We buy, sell, and trade high-quality, gently read books through our store front and sell much of our inventory through a number of online sites, including
