About Us

    Our Place

    The Corner Stone Bookshop has been a well known destination at 110 Margaret Street in Plattsburgh, NY since 1975.   In our shop, we have three floors of second hand book titles, an occasional selection of the industry's newest releases, and the ability to get almost anything.  Plattsburgh's downtown also offers many eateries, unique shops, and cafes. We're a comfort friendly place and we encourage you to stop by one of downtown's wonderful coffee shops before or after you browse our stacks. 

    Our Collection

     We find our books by chance, which is part of the fun. If you have books you would like to donate that you think others will enjoy, we would be happy to take a look at your collection regardless of its size. To arrange pick up of large donations, please email us at hello@thecornerstonebookshop.com.

    We always look forward to the chance to trade books for store credit with our customers.  If we have your information on file, or you've got a trading card going, we consider you a trading partner. Trades can be arranged in our brick-and-mortar store when we’re open. 

    We also purchase individual books or book collections when we think they will be of particular interest to our community. What we can offer varies greatly depending on the fit with our current collection.  We appreciate the opportunity to consider rare and antique books and collections as well as modern interests. Local history gems and Adirondack specialties are especially welcome. Please give us a call at 518-561-0520 if you’d like to arrange time to discuss a book collection purchase. 

    Special Orders

    When we can, we are happy to connect with other booksellers to locate “hard to find” or rare books. We're also happy to order books into the shop that our members plan to use as gifts - we love being part of someone’s happy book surprise. We're happy to help where we can. For all special orders, please email us at hello@thecornerstonebookshop.com or come visit us!
