Built in the 1800’s, this almost two century old one-room schoolhouse is now the home of the Tree of Life Christian Bookstore. Tree of Life carries new and used books, Bibles, study helps, music and videos, gifts, local crafts, and supplies for children, youth, and adult classes.
This out-of-the-way bookstore is centrally located in the heart of the North Country and welcomes you to its peaceful corner for reading pleasure and spiritual growth. Come by soon to visit, have a cup of coffee, find that special book, and get refreshed.

Tree of Life Hours & Payment Methods
We are going to be CLOSED from January 1st until January 21st for our annual hibernation/vacation time. If you need to reach us for a special order please call us at home at 315-353-5054. We will gladly meet you at the store when we are working on inventory or any remodeling projects. Yes, that is how we spend our down time.

We gladly accept cash, check, or credit card.
Classes, Workshops & Singing
There are no special events scheduled at Tree of Life for the remainder of 2020. We appreciate your prayers and ideas as we look forward to 2021.
Receiving Used Books
Dick will receive used Christian books on the days we are open or by appointment. He will go through the books while you wait or shop. Our policy is to give a voucher to be used in the bookstore at your convenience and any books can be taken with you if Tree of Life is not able to use them. Thank you for wanting to recycle books for others to enjoy.
