Exploring Indie Bookstores: Munro’s Books

Hello Kid Lit Village readers! Are there any indie bookstores in your neighbourhood? We are super fortunate in Victoria British Columbia to have several indie bookstores in our city. I plan to feature a new bookstore each month with a peek inside at the children’s section of each store. Munro’s Books is an iconic store in Victoria, B.C. and for all readers it is a must-visit. Located on government street, it has an impressive entrance.

And on first entering, it might seem small but make your way to the back and you’ll find the children’s section is well stocked with little areas focusing on different kinds of books.

Here is one of Munro’s Bookstore display windows. Sometimes I imagine if my book could be in there with Forest Baby, Little Pinecone, Jessie’s Island and Sea Otter Pup. I love it that they devote a picture window fully to children’s books.

There’s so much more to see in here so you’ll have to come and visit yourself. If you do, Murchie’s Tea and the Irish Times Pub are right there on the same street. Here is just one wall from the picture book section. There’s so much room for covers that face out, which is another thing I love about this store. I love the mix of classics with newer titles!

What is your favourite indie book store and where is it located? Share in the comments!

    1. Belinda, it’s great that you at least have the children’s store! Sounds like there’s an opportunity in your area to open an indie book store! Maybe somebody will give it a go one day.
