Directions to GIVENS BOOKS

We specialize in Classics, Antique books, local Lynchburg and Virginia history.

Givens Books and Little Dickens has been operating under that title, and in the current location, since 1999. The original bookstore, Boonshire Books, was originally founded by George and Sylvia Givens in 1976, with the founder's son, Danny, beginning a toy store in 1989. Danny took over operation of both businesses during the 1999 relocation. My name is Abby and I am the current Used Book Manager for the store. I have been here since the beginning of 2022. I strive to provide quality used books on a wide variety of subjects.
