The Friends of the University Park Public Library is thrilled to announce that Second Chapter Bookstore has popped up again this year, with operating hours on Tuesdays from 10am-2pm and Saturdays from 10am-4pm. Second Chapter will sell gently used, donated books, with proceeds ultimately benefiting the University Park Public Library.

During a year that saw many cancelled events and altered plans, Second Chapter Bookstore became a staple in our community, allowing patrons, neighbors, and volunteers to come together and share a love of books. We are thrilled to continue what we started with this new “chapter”!

Second Chapter is located in a new space at 6916 Snider Plaza, next to East Hampton Sandwich Co. and Short Stop and will be open through December 18.

Address and Phone Number:

6916 Snider Plaza
Dallas, TX 75205

Tuesdays from 10-2pm


Saturdays from 10-4pm
