We have a small but diligently curated selection of records. In fact, The Book House has been named one of the top places to buy vinyl in Minnesota, and remains the only place to buy vinyl in the University area!


About the Book House

The New Book House offers an old-fashioned book store experience, with it the increasingly rare opportunity to browse a large stock, hang out, read, write, invite friends to meet and talk with fellow book-lovers. In addition to our store stock, our 40,000+ on-line book archive can be searched at our catalog site.

The Book House’s remodel of Historic Dinkydale’s entire second floor carved out a labyrinthine series of book rooms, a room for small gatherings and monthly storytelling, a Rare Book Room, a front room with large windows overlooking 4th Street and a reading nook in the poetry alcove, below a window that overlooks Bob Dylan’s old Dinkytown apartment. This room also features an expanded collection of vinyl.
