Answer

Our Friends of the Johnson County Library volunteers currently operate two bookstores. One in our Antioch Library, and another in our Blue Valley Library, as well as online booksales. For more information, check here: https://www.jocolibrary.org/support/friends-bookstores.

Here is a list of metro-area book dealers for used and rare books.

The list was generated using the Reference USA database. Unfortunately, used and rare books are grouped together there. However, in the American Book Trade Directory 2010-2011, those shown in olive are listed as "antiquarian" in nature (ie: those who deal in old and rare books).
