The Mount Rushmore Bookstores carry a variety of books about Mount Rushmore and surrounding parks. They also carry games for kids and adults, books on Native Americans, pioneer women and a good selection of DVD's.

The Mount Rushmore Bookstores publish educational books, pamphlets and products with direct input from the National Park Service to increase visitor awareness of the memorial's significance and have provided the memorial with over $1,000,000 since 1993. This funding is used to support:

  • Intern and volunteer staff
  • Free publications for visitors
  • Junior Ranger and Rushmore Ranger programs
  • Flags for the Avenue of Flags
  • Special events throughout the year
  • Educational programs and school field trips
  • Interpretive exhibits
  • Care and protection of the Lincoln Borglum Museum Collection
