    **THE WORLD'S GREATEST OUTDOOR BOOKSTORE**

    ABOUT IT
    ========
    A unique bookstore unlike any other, attracting people globally and becoming famous for being the largest independently owned and operated outdoor bookstore in the U.S.

    BOOKSTORE
    ============
    It's like wandering into a magical place; a Hobbit's house or a Never-Ending Story book.

    Nooks, crannies, and outdoor seating.

    A 400+ year old oak tree towering over the middle of everything.

    Nearly one million books ranging from the 35 cent specials which line the outside walls and are still for sale on the honor system, to rare, out-of-print first editions, and books valued in the thousands of dollars.

    That is a lot of books, my friends.

    HOURS
    ======
    Open 7 Days a Week: 9:30am - Sunset

    I would spend my weekends here if I lived in Ojai.

    HIGHLY RECOMMEND.

    Even if books aren't your thing, Bart's is worth walking through. If books are your thing, Bart's is a "must visit." An outdoor (at least partially) bookstore that has books from 35 cents to collectors items and a variety to match. You can't say you have been to Ojai without also saying you have been to Bart's.

    Bart’s Books, a charming outdoor bookstore, is the perfect place to spend an afternoon perusing one of our favorite things -- used literature.

    Love Bart's Books and can easily pass an afternoon under the oaks with a pile of books there.
