black river booksBlack River Books began as a hobby that grew into a passion, then a small, part-time internet business, and finally a used bookstore with an actual storefront.  Dick and Pam Haferman, the owners, started with collecting modern fiction first editions.  As their interest and their collection grew they dreamed of one daydude owning a store.  Toward that end, they have for years collected books in as many genres as possible.  Prior to opening Black River Books in 2007, the Hafermans had over 27,000 books in their small home and another several thousand in storage. They supported their book-buying habit by selling select titles online. The goal, however, was to quit their jobs and open a store.

Whether it’s a $2 book for the beach, signed first editions or books about Michigan or by Michiganders they’ll have it

The doodlesIn addition to the warm and friendly service the Hafermans offer, you can expect a cup of coffee and a warm and friendly greeting from Booker & Dewey, the couple’s two Labradoodles.  Not to worry they don’t jump. Ask Booker to say “I love you”.
