The Book Rack, an Anniston institution that was set to close after almost 45 years, opened a new chapter on July 1st as “Jo’s Book Rack.”

Patricia Hancock bought the store five years ago as part of a lifelong dream she finally fulfilled in retirement. Now that Hancock is retiring again, she is “jumping for joy” that she didn’t have to close the Quintard Avenue store that has more than 70,000 books.

The Book Rack grew popular selling used paperbacks at half-price while giving 25% of the cover price back in credit to people who brought in good-condition books.
