Find Waldo this summer at three dozen Downtown Knoxville locations!
Pick up your Waldo Passport at Union Ave Books or any other participating location from July 1–31, and start hunting!
We’re a locally owned independent bookstore with a great selection of fiction, non-fiction, young adult, and children’s books, all chosen with you in mind. And because our booksellers know books, we can help you find the right books for you, your family, and your friends.
Check out our book suggestions for adults and for children and young adults. If you don’t see what you want, we’ll order it for you! Need books for a school or group? We can take care of that, too. And you can always use our online order form.
Need a gift? We sell those, too—and the cards to go with them! And we wrap gifts, too, at no charge!
If you enjoy meeting authors, you’ve come to the right place! We host a variety of local, regional and nationally known authors for readings and book signings. Check out our upcoming events, and be sure to sign up for our email updates.
Union Ave Books has been, continues to be, and shall remain an open and safe space for members of every race, gender identification, and credo.
