Reviews for Third Place Books

Third Place Books

Readers unite! This wonderful bookstore is like an old-fashioned community clubhouse drawing all ages. Beyond the well-organized collections of best sellers, cookbooks, gift items and used paperbacks, there's a stage where musicians play regularly and a better-than-your-average food court. Authors read in The Den. It all adds up to a big bunch of awesome.

The abundant staff reviews are really appreciated. Great selection and nice staff. Having Honey Bear Bakery adjacent is awesome!

Love this place. – From the organic blueberry muffins at Honey Bear Bakery to the awesome children's area in the bookstore, this place is a destination that always makes me smile. My kids are learning to play chess with the oversized set (board is about 16 square feet) and always have a great time when we go.

Everything you could want in a bookstore: A huge selection, tasty food and all the local charm you can handle. – In Short
In "The Great Good Place," sociologist Ray Oldenburg proposed that everyone needs three places: home, work, and a "third place" to meet and socialize. Owner Ron Scher created Third Place Books with Oldenburg's vision in mind. His meeting place boasts a full schedule of free author events, musical performances, lectures, literary discussions and poetry readings, and sells new, used and collectible books. An in-store Honey Bear Bakery provides coffee and baked goods.
