About

Our Story: Family Owned Since 1980

WELCOME TO AMY'S BOOKCASE

Amy’s Bookcase is a brick and mortar paperback book exchange in Farmington, NM. We currently house over 100,000 books, categorized by subject and author, in an organized atmosphere. We are conveniently located, carry most mainstream genres and offer a cost-effective paperback book exchange program.

 

Amy’s Bookcase has been Family owned since 1980 and was originally opened in about 1968. Although the store has changed owners a few times since then, we still have some of the original customers. We are a proud independent bookstore!

 

Our store is clean and organized. Our volunteer staff is knowledgeable and can not only assist you in finding what you are looking for but can also make suggestions.

 

Through the years, we have been involved in collecting for food drives, working with volunteers, donating books to local agencies, servicemen and veterans, and providing an eyeglass drop for the Lions Club. We value our community and look forward to serving for many years to come.

Who We Are

ABOUT US

In 1980 Dale and Jean Pancoast became the 5th owners of “The Bookcase” paperback exchange which was started in about 1968. They grew the business, and became invested in the community, providing a great reading resource in the Four Corners region. Their daughter, Amy Henkenius, and her husband, Mike, bought the store from Dale and Jean in 1998, renaming it Amy’s Bookcase, and continuing the tradition of service to the community.

 

Through the years, we have been involved in collecting for food drives, working with volunteers, donating books to local agencies, servicemen and veterans, and providing an eyeglass drop for the Lions Club. We value our community and look forward to serving for many years to come.

 

We are also proud members of the American Booksellers Association, the Farmington Convention and Visitors Bureau, and the Mountain and Plains Independent Booksellers Association.
