Gems on Our Shelves

What distinguishes browsing the shelves at Books on First in Dixon from browsing anywhere else is the joy you, our visitor, would experience when finding a book on our shelves which you had been seeking for a long time or discovering one you did not know even existed but absolutely resonates with who you are, what you need to know or what you want to read, right now. 

We give you a glimpse of our shelves here for you so that you too can experience some of that joy.  And, you can request a copy at your convenience, whenever or wherever you may be, while visiting us here online.
