DANSVILLE — A small town bookstore offers a bit of magic to the experience of buying your own books.
Debra Johnson, The Book Den owner, had a vision for the town she called home as she opened the used bookstore on Main Street over three decades ago.
“I wanted to bring a bookstore to the community,” she said. “We really needed one in Dansville. We opened the bookstore in November of 1985.”
Johnson would go on vacations and see small bookstores in other towns. She really loved the idea of a used bookstore in her own community.
“We started this used bookstore after being inspired by others we saw on vacation,” she said. “We listened to what people wanted when they came into the store. We have some new books here too. We mostly have used books we put into categories.”
