It’s cramped. It’s overcrowded with books. It’s in the basement. There’s no Internet and no coffee. And those are just some of the reasons we love it. Established in 1951, Joseph Fox Bookshop has always been independently owned and operated by passionate lovers of the written word.
It is committed to supporting and showcasing talented local authors. And it may not have every book, but it has a carefully chosen selection of what the owners consider to be the best, and additional items can be special ordered.
Take a step back in time to when having quality at your fingertips mattered more than having everything at your fingertips.
