While this newly opened Pilsen bookstore focuses on selling new and used titles, the true driving force behind this charming, no-frills shop is to help support local neighborhood schools, promoting literacy by supplying teachers and students with books. As far as the inventory goes, book lovers will be especially delighted in the shop's selection of rare books (you can also browse online), including vintage copies of Poems of Emily Dickinson and The Jungle Book, in addition to new titles.

Without a doubt, one of the finest bookstores I've been to anywhere. And, I've been to a lot.


Absolutely love this book store! Not only do they help out the community by providing books to local schools and teachers but they also have a solid collection of rare books. They also have a really cute back nook filled with great children's books for all you parents. It's super easy to lose track of time while looking through their book collection. Definitely check it out when you're in the neighborhood.
