Sixteen years ago, Mando Books, Inc. opened in Cortland, New York, with one goal in mind:

prepack system, which allows students to hang out and listen to music while our staff

In 2002 we opened a store in Binghamton to service a
whole new community. Servicing Binghamton University and Broome Community College successfully, Mando Books has made a name for itself in Binghamton as a community business, supporting both local and university organizations and events. We continue to provide a high level of service and value to our customers, and look forward to providing course materials to Binghamton and BCC students for a long time to come.
