Welcome to Island Bookstore

Welcome to Island Bookstore, located on the beautiful northern Outer Banks of North Carolina.

We are a full-service Independent general bookstore with books on all subjects including local interest, fiction, travel, cooking, history, poetry, sports, crafts and humor, in print or on CD. Our Kitty Hawk location features a large selection of magazines.

Our children’s book sections are a dense, well-curated and much-loved area in all of our stores. You’ve been warned: let your children loose in there and you might not see them again for hours!

In the summer, we host a series of Author Signings at our Corolla and Duck Stores. With authors who write across all genres – mystery, fiction, children’s picture books, non-fiction, cooking, and local history – you’re sure to find a treasure of a new book to take to the beach, give as a gift, or share with your local book club at home.

Please come by and see us. We should have every book on your list. And if not, we can have it in stock within a couple of days. Bags too full to tote all your purchases home? We can ship books anywhere!
