The Friends of Kimball Library operate a used book store called The Book Shop. The Book Shop offers gently used-books of all genres, for children, young adults, and adults, as well as used DVDs and CDs. Find everything from the basic paperback novel to the most beautiful art and photography books.

The Book Shop is located within a popular local coffee spot, The Green Light Café at 24 Pleasant St., Randolph, Vermont. The Friends, and café owner Josh Mather, think that having a coffee shop with books, or a book store with coffee is a perfect pairing.

The Book Shop and Green Light Café were established to provide our community with a warm and friendly gathering space right in the heart of Randolph and a short drive from other communities within the region. Visitors to the Green Mountain State will find our location a convenient and pleasant stop-over.

The Friends are dedicated to promoting reading and all proceeds from the Book Shop are used to support programs at Kimball Public Library. The Friends are a 501(C)3, non-profit organization.
