Raven Book Store
The only independent, local bookstore in Lawrence has been in business over 23 yrs. Heidi Raak, owner, does much personalized ordering, primarily of books, and has brought in new lines of well received artistic greeting cards, day planners and journals. As one customer said the books stocked seem to have been personally selected for quality, and the reviews provided by staff both in writing and in person help customers in their selection. Started primarily as a mystery book store, it has a strong representation of local and regional authors, including nature and history of the area, and a full selection of all other types of books: fiction, travel, cookbooks, biographies, history & politics, etc. The store is open 10 am to 8 PM throughout the week and 1-5 on Sundays. Come in and enjoy.
