Textbooks, fun books, events and more
Located smack in the middle of the village, the Kenyon Bookstore, which recently underwent extensive renovations, is an important hub in Kenyon’s academic and literary life, plus much more. You’ll buy your textbooks and school supplies here. You’ll find loads of good reading, from classics and bestsellers. The store always showcases books by visiting writers and lecturers, and regularly hosts readings and book-signings. It’s also an emporium for snacks both mundane and exotic, drinks, ice cream, greeting cards, Kenyon apparel in every imaginable form, necessaries and novelties. Long tables and comfortable chairs encourage lingering. So does the friendliness of the staff.
Bookstore factoid: The Kenyon Bookstore is the nation’s longest continuously operating college bookstore and the third-oldest bookstore of any kind in America.
