The Book Exchange
2680 Highway 225, Flat Rock, NC
Open Monday through Saturday
10 a.m. to 4 p.m

All proceeds go to local charities.

The Book Exchange, located on the first floor of the historic Old Flat Rock Post Office, is a favorite source of used books (both hard cover and paperbacks), new books, magazines, greeting cards and note paper for both locals and visitors in the area.  With the exception of consignment books, greetings cards and note paper, all items we sell have been donated and all proceeds go to local charities. We always need volunteers to work at the Book Exchange. Just one day a month 10am - 4pm or half day, if you prefer. Please call Ivy Cowell at (828)698-9149.

The Book Exchange is run by the all-volunteer Ladies Aid Society of Flat Rock, Inc. Through the generous donations of books/magazines and the volunteer hours of our staff and members, local charities receive benefits yearly.

Besides paperbacks, books and magazines, we carry beautiful prints of Historic Flat Rock homes by artist Cora Minty. We also have Flat Rock license plates and books on the history of Flat Rock by authors Sadie Patton, Galen Reuther and local historian Louise Bailey. “Card Houses,” by craftswoman, Dorothy Carey, are also very popular and make wonderful gifts. Please stop by…enjoy a little history and take home a memory and a bargain!

To reach our parking area, turn into Village Center Drive (opposite the Flat Rock Playhouse). Drive around to  the back of the Village Hall and continue on to the Book Exchange building.
