A book store located in the south-western part of the city, not far from the map border.
The Book Store is featured in the mission Monolith forces where the player (along with Vano and Sokolov, or Merkulov and Skelya) must raid the store as it was believed by Colonel Kovalsky the Monolith forces were responsible of the death of the Missing recon unit. The player must kill all the Monolith forces at the entrance, then clear up the back room where the Monolith fighters had set up a Monolith structure (similar to the one in the Palace of Culture in S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl) to call upon their master. The player, however, is able to raid the store by themselves out of mission, and still investigate the structure.
There is a stash in one of the piled bookshelves, near the entrance of the first corridor, that contains a SGI-5k and various supplies.
