The Colebrook Book Barn was established in 1955 at its present location in Colebrook, Connecticut in the northwestern corner of the state, about 3 miles from the Massachusetts border. We are approximately one hour from Hartford, an hour and a half from New Haven, an hour from Waterbury and 30 minutes from Great Barrington, Massachusetts, and the Berkshires, and 2 ½ hours from both New York City and Boston.
Because the Book Barn is not heated we are by necessity closed in the winter, usually from mid November to mid March, however if we are available we do allow browsing in the winter months by appointment only. In the summer we are open by chance or appointment, it’s best to call ahead.
We are always interested in buying large or small collections of good books, including rare or unusual items on any subject, and also maps, posters, pamphlets and ephemera.
