About Blue Ridge Books
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.
Currently, we are still located at our original location on Main St. in downtown Waynesville. Over the next month, we will be moving around the corner to Hazelwood Village. Blue Ridge Books is excited about the new location. Whether you’re a local or a visitor, be sure to come visit our new space.
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.
