Nifty Thrifty Bookstore
Find a good book in our Bookstore to read this season, or donate your previously read books. The Book Movers Group, an amazing group of volunteers, organize and run the Bookstore. Books are sorted by category, with a special section for Large Print Books.
Women of The Book
First there was a room without a real purpose; someone proposed they build a bookcase and have books for borrowing. Then shelves overflowed and they wanted more bookcases, and so it became a bookstore. It’s a bookstore open to the public and it has a name, "Nifty Thrifty Bookstore" run by a dedicated group I like to call Women of The Book at the Ballard NW Senior Center. The Nifty Thrifty Bookstore keeps on growing from your ongoing generous donations. Thank you!

Every day donations of books, movies, and music are given to the center. Thank you everyone who has helped to fill the Bookstores shelves. Thank you Mary Zippel and Wendy McCallum for donating the wonderful bookcases which line the Bookstore. This amazing donation was made in 2012 and greatly increased the Bookstores popularity. In 2013, Mary Zippel also donated a CD shelf to go on the wall. This wonderful addition to the Bookstore will make access to our wide selection of music CDs easier to reach.
We want to hear from you!
