Welcome to Union Ave Books!


RichardsCircleDisplayWe’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 new books and upcoming releases. 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.
