Now Michigan's second-largest used and rare bookstore, Lowry's Books is your locally-owned full-service bookstore and toystore. We have over 200,000 used and rare books( NOW THE LARGEST IN WEST MICHIGAN). And the SECOND LARGEST in Michigan. Because we fervently believe in the printed book we also stock about 15,000 new volumes. We will get any book that is in print for you, usually within 1-3 days, and we'll conduct a search for those hard-to-find and out-of-print books. We have a great selection of greeting cards and the second largest magazine selection in western St. Joseph County (our Sturgis location has the largest).

We have a great selection of fun, educational, and classic toys in all price ranges for your child, or the child in you.
