About Our Store

The Brookings Book Company


The Brookings Book Company is a general Used Book Store located in Brookings, South Dakota. Our city is an academic community, the home of South Dakota State University, and this is often reflected by the availability of scholarly titles in our inventory. We have a special interest in books about Native American history and culture, and the history of the Upper Midwestern United States.


Our store was founded in 1998, and relocated to our current location at 321 Main Avenue in 2004. We have been selling online since 2000. Our inventory consists of approximately 45,000 volumes ranging from rare antiquarian editions to modern paperback bestsellers, from well-read used books to unread publisher remainders.


Our store is pleased to be the home for resident bookstore cat Spenser, who was adopted from the Brookings Regional Humane Society, and has become a local "celebrity."


Our regular store hours are Noon to 4PM (central time) Tuesday through Saturday. We are closed Sundays, Mondays and most holidays.
