Arlie's Books may look like a small shop but it's got tons of books inside. Rows, upon rows of nearly every piece of literature; Harlequin Romances to Historical Fiction. The staff there are friendly and willing to help.

Love this place. If you love old school book shops packed with treasure then drop by when in town. Find a good book is part of travels and road trips.
