Red Cart Books is both an online
bookstore as well as a local store serving Cornwall and the surrounding area in Ontario. We offer a
full range of used books, both fiction and non-fiction, as well as rare, out-of-print, and
collectible books. We offer local
delivery for online purchases in our storefront in Floral Expressions, located at 516 Pitt Street. You have the option to pay in cash when picking up a book there. We also have in our store hundreds of books that are not listed online.
While browsing online does not satisfy
our tactile pleasure quite like browsing through a used bookstore,
the convenience of browsing from the comfort of your home whenever you
want does make up for it somewhat. We hope you find pleasure in
browsing through our categories in search of the unexpected.
Like an old-time peddler carting wares
from house to house, Red Cart Books facilitates the sale of books
from neighbours who have books to sell to book lovers looking for
those books. We pick up books you want to get rid of, and also buy books for

The owner of Red Cart Books worked for
many years in the book department of the local for-profit thrift
store while also working at the library. Believing that books found
in a community are a resource to be shared and treasured, rather than
sent to the landfill, and dismayed by the tens of thousands of fine
books that have been and continue to be thrown out, the owner would
like to offer an alternative: a bookstore diffused throughout the
entire community, made available to everyone. We at Red Cart Books
invite you to be part of it.
