Bookstore


Located inside Lawson McGhee Library in downtown Knoxville, the Friends @ Rothrock Used Book Shop is open almost every day year-round. The bookstore is always closed when Lawson McGhee is closed and on Saturdays when the University of Tennessee plays football in Knoxville. View the 2018 UT football schedule here.

Many of the books and media in Rothrock are $2 or less. Parking is FREE on weekends at the Locust Street Garage.

Also available: Friends gift certificates! Certificates may be purchased in $5 increments and may be used to purchase any book or non-book items from any Friends sale location, including Rothrock and all branch sales.
