Read Rose Books houses a diverse collection of used, vintage, and first edition books. The name Read Rose Books was chosen in honor of Lancaster, the Red Rose city, and for all of the books that will be read. There is a book for everyone from Russian literature to poetry to historic fiction. We are always happy to lend a hand and help you find your next great read.


Local artists are a prominent feature at the store. From the moment you walk in you will be able to see the large acrylic paintings of Josh Manny and clay earrings/ watercolors from Morgan Popson. 


Also included in the store is a selection of fair trade items handmade in Peru. These items are only available in store so make sure to check out our hours and stop in some time.
