Wilkes University


Wilkes University and King’s College, through Barnes & Noble College Booksellers, Inc., operate a joint bookstore facility on South Main Street, equidistant between the two campuses, just off Public Square in downtown Wilkes-Barre. This "academic superstore" is designed to meet the specific needs of students at Wilkes and King’s, as well as those of the community-at-large. In addition to the standard Barnes & Noble bookstore stock, the Wilkes-King’s Bookstore offers comprehensive textbook services, lounge chairs, tables, and a full-service Starbucks Café, where students, faculty, staff, and community members regularly meet. The bookstore also houses a "spirit" shop that features logo merchandise for Wilkes University.
