Nebraska Passport Stop


We are thrilled to announce that Terrace Books has been selected as a local stop on the Visit Nebraska sponsored Nebraska Passport for 2023!

We have been chosen as one of just seven specialty shops in this year's "Self Express-Way" category! There are many amazing, locally-driven stops on the passport, with an array of businesses that include coffee shops, restaurants, breweries, galleries, museums and so much more! This is such an incredible program and opportunity for the store, and the community, as it will bring people from all over the state and beyond to visit all the stops and see the beautiful state of Nebraska along the way!


The official start date is May 1! Download the Nebraska Passport app to stay up-to-date and see what other businesses have been selected this year. Order your Passport Book to check off some stops, see the state, and win some prizes!

The Winter Catalog Is Here!

Brought to you by the Midwest Independent Booksellers Association and its members, the 2022 Winter Catalog is here in time for your holiday gift planning! 

For our first year of business, we have opted for a "scatter mailing" of the winter catalog, so keep your eyes open for a catalog in your mailbox! If you do not receive one, NO WORRIES! We have plenty in store, so come pick one up! Be sure to clip the coupon on the back of the catalog - bring it in with you to Terrace Books when you do your shopping in November and December to save on your book and bookish gift purchases!
