OPEN for Readers who love to browse!!

The Book Rack customers can now come inside the store to browse our 65,000 books, but we are still requiring masks. We have added several new members to our staff who we invite you to get to know and you'll appreciate what they bring to The Book Rack. While all your favorite Book Rackers are still on the staff, several must await medical advances before they can safely reenter the workplace. We have reopened our bathroom to customers and with your help will keep it safe for you and us.

We will continue to accept book orders placed through this site, email or phone. We are also continuing to offer curbside pickup for customers who are unable to shop in store.

Be careful out there! Very, very careful!! We look forward to continuing to support you through this situation and beyond. 

Welcome to the home of The Book Rack. Please search or browse our inventory. If you can't find what you like please fill out our off-line search form. Any title we don't currently have we can also place in your account as a request and when it does come in we'll be alerted by our system and give you a call. This is a FREE, no obligation service, but one we are pleased to provide.

We offer shipping services to inmates in jails and prisons nationwide. The books must be purchased from our web site or at our store at 4764 Elmore Ave, Davenport, Iowa. Most institutions do not accept more than 5 books at a time nor hardcovers of any type. Please check with the authorities at the institution to insure you understand their limitations.


Teachers: Our store helps promote reading and that books are important. Bring your class by for a visit as part of a reading field trip! Give us a call and we can work on making your class visit a good one. And remember, if you are using your own money for classroom books (and what teacher doesn't?) you can use store credit donated by our customers toward 1/2 of your purchase to help out.
