Downtown Books is a very independent bookstore serving the entire Outer Banks of North Carolina. Our mission is to put the right book in the right hands at the right time with a carefully curated selection of books. We feature a huge array of Outer Banks titles including fiction, history, memoirs and more; today's NYT and Indiebound best-sellers; Southern cookbooks; kid's books size 0 to YA and even signed books by today's favorite local and national authors. Open year-round on Roanoke Island in beautiful downtown Manteo, NC.
Beach. Read. Repeat. We'll show you how!
