About Blue Ridge Books

Who are we?

Blue Ridge Books was established in 2007. We are Waynesville’s only independent bookstore specializing in new books. Our team enjoys hosting authors for weekend events. We also work collaboratively with area schools to supply students and teachers with their reading needs.

Where are we?

We are located in Hazelwood Village, just outside of downtown Waynesville, North Carolina. Our street is packed with quaint, independent shops and restaurants. You can spend an entire day with us and our neighboring merchants. We hope you pay our bookstore a visit. With hardwood floors, a tin roof and books galore, who couldn't be happy?

What do we offer?

At Blue Ridge Books, we carry fiction, non-fiction, regional books, children’s books, used books, a large selection of magazines and newspapers, and unique greeting cards. We are happy to special order books that we don’t have in stock at no additional cost.
