About Us

Rivendell Bookstore is Abilene, Kansas's locally owned & independent bookstore. 

Our 100+ year old building offers a casual and inviting shopping experience, with plenty of comfy chairs scattered throughout for you to sit and stay with us a while. We have a wide selection of new and used books available, and can special order any item that is not in stock as long as it is available through one of our vendors. 

We offer a great selection of gifts and reading accessories (book lights, bookmarks, etc), and have a trade credit program available for customers. Our Customer Rewards Program is free to join, and offers customers a hassle-free way to earn $5 off for every $50 they spend. (Our computer keeps track of everything for you!)

Our store is pet friendly, however we do ask that pets please keep their owners on a leash. 

Come in and browse, or shop online! Check out our Staff Picks to see some of our personal favorites, or visit our Local Interest Page to find books about Kansas or by Kansas authors. 

Thanks for visiting!
