Terrace Books

Terrace Books is a neighborhood bookstore in Windsor Terrace with a selection of new, used and rare books.

Since we took over the shop in 2013, we've prided ourselves on being a gathering place for readers and writers in the Windsor Terrace, South Slope and Kensington neighborhoods. 

We buy books by appointment only. Our specialty is rare and vintage fiction in excellent condition.

Due to space constraints, we are unable to accept unsolicited donations. If you'd like to donate books, we recommend donating to Housing Works.

If you have a collection of books that we might be interested in, please contact stephanie at communitybookstore dot net and we will get back to you as soon as we can. We can make housecalls under the right circumstances.


Join us (and your neighbors) for storytime every Sunday at 11 AM!
