Calling all Book Lover's to The York Emporium in PA Dutch Country



I have stumbled upon The York Emporium, a diamond in the rough. A secret known only to the locals. It is one of the coolest book stores; it is 19,000 sq ft! They have a huge selection of used and rare books. They also have music, videos, military items, antiques, comics and other cool odds and ends.

This is a book lover's dream. I literally could spend days in there. You name the topic and I am pretty sure there is a book in there about it. Which I must say is reasonably priced. I have been to many book stores and none even comes close to The York Emporium. There is great music, free coffee and a unique atmosphere. I literally was singing and dancing while I was there. They have all kinds of free live events and they participate in First Friday York. They offer off street parking and free wi-fi.
