Located on Washington Street, just a short walk from campus, THE HAUNTED BOOKSTORE is a great place to spend a lazy afternoon, wandering through the stacks and rooms full of old interesting books. The books here range from educational tomes to interesting "fun" readers and there is also a section that children would enjoy...Definitly something for the whole family when it comes to interesting places to visit. Located in an old house, the feel of this place is warm and friendly and relaxing as well...I have spent many hours just soaking up the atmosphere here and have many books in my possession to prove it as well!

Travel to Washington street and see for yourself....THE HAUNTED BOOKSTORE is one of those "must visit " places in the Iowa City area......don't miss it!

More about Haunted Bookshop

Open since 1978, The Haunted Bookshop moved to its current location in 2013, expanding to accommodate 45,000 books in over 100 fiction and non-fiction sections as well as children's toys, board and card games for children and adults, and strategy games. The shop is mostly only haunted by two cats, Logan and Nierme, who make friends with visitors while helpful staff check to make sure you find what you like and get recommendations if you want them. The store is also a popular meeting place for friends, study buddies, and book groups, with tables and chairs scattered about and plenty of space for quiet reading.
