"For seven years, I have had the privilege of managing the Des Moines Half Price Books store. I came to HPB for a job and was lucky enough to find a second family. Greta, my rescue dog, views our store as a second home as well. Please visit our store and browse our aisles. We would love to help you find a book from your childhood or a new favorite."
