Maggie’s Books aims to echo the region’s geographic diversity. We are a small bookstore, but our collection packs a punch, with something for everyone from babies to grown-ups. We strive for breadth in our collection so that there is truly a book to match every one of our customers. We aim to make sure the hottest bestsellers are available, as well as a thoughtful collection of backlist titles and classics for all age groups.
Kids have fun when they come to Maggie’s! We have an inviting children’s area where young ones can stretch out on the rug, snuggle up with a pillow, or sit in the rocking chair and explore the books. We host story times on alternating Saturdays, and promote local children’s authors with readings and activities. Whether you are looking for a board book for a new baby, or a chapter book for a middle school reader, our friendly and knowledgeable staff can recommend something that is just right.
Teens will find plenty to read at Maggie’s too. We have an ever-growing collection of Young Adult titles for older readers. YA books can expose readers to real life situations and help them develop skills and vocabulary to cope with the trials and tribulations of growing up. They can also transport young adult readers to wild and fantastic places where magic exists and anything is possible. Ask our staff to recommend titles that are right for your young adult reader.
Of course, grown up readers will find no shortage of books to love at Maggie’s. We aim to have our finger on the pulse of the book world, and showcase both bestsellers and buzzworthy indie titles. Our fiction backlist grows weekly, and we love recommendations from our customers! Our popular local history books and regional guides never fail to draw attention, and if it’s information you’re after, we have a carefully selected collection of nonfiction from beautiful cookbooks to engaging current events and history titles, to poetry and essay collections.
