Piqua Public Library Used Bookstore
The Piqua Public Library has an ongoing used book sale on the first floor of the Fort Piqua Plaza. The area which houses the bookstore thought to have been the check-in counter of the hotel. This would have been during the building’s days as the Favorite Hotel after the 1914 remodel.
The bookstore includes books from the Library’s own collection, as well as donated books. The bookstore has both fiction and non-fiction books for sale. Topics range from World War II history to fantasy novels to collectible books. Prices range from 20¢ for a children’s classic like The Babysitter’s Club to $1.00 for a hardback mystery novel. Collectible books can cost $2 up to $7 or more for a set of books. Magazines are also for sale in the bookstore, they have no set price but donations are accepted.
