OUR HISTORY

Main Street Books opened its doors on March 2006 at 16 South Main Street and moved to its larger location. 106 South Main,  on Feb. 27 2008.

In February of 2014 we got real cocky and thought we should stop renting and own our own buildng. We bought the builiding at 8 Main Street South and went crazy exposing brick, pulling up old flooring and giving the store some of our own personal creative touches. This building was once a Kresge's store (which was a precursor to today's KMart store) and a Jupiter store, which was a five and dime store.

Main Street Books continues to grow in its mission and in its involvement in the community by serving as a venue for many local authors . We have two writing groups, are in the process of creating our own writing den ( a spot in the basement for writers to find peace and quiet and interact and write) and sponsor some local sports teams to include a recreation volleyball team and a recreation softball team.
