New Location!

Know Knew Books has a brand new location. Our new location has a very different look and feel, but our continued efforts to bring you high quality intersting and enjoyable items to read remains the same.

About Us

Since 1988, Know Knew Books has been an independent used bookstore. Individual reviews can be found at the Know Knew Books page on Yelp and the Know Knew Books page on Insider Pages. We have been featured in The Paly Voice from Palo Alto High School.

At our new location we have streamlined our inventory getting back to a primary focus of providing our patrons with used high quality books covering a wide variety of topics. We have also added an eclectic selection of jewelry and greeting cards.

We're open from 10:00AM to 10:00PM on Monday through Sunday.

Features and Events

Know Knew Books is more than just books. To go along with our new look we will be bringing in new events for you to enjoy. Every week we will bring in new events and continue to expand the scope and variety for your entertainment. Information about events, exhibits, and readings will be given below.

If you have a idea for something that you think would be intresting to see in the book store please send an email to Emily Stains, our event coordinator. In past we've had everything from live recitals, break dancing and tarot readings.
