Wow! We are so happy to announce that Port Coquitlam City Counselor Glen Pollock came in to the store on May 11th and presented us with this completely unexpected award. Chosen by the May Day Organizing Committee and sponsored by the Tri-Cities Chamber of Commerce, we are recognized as the May Day Business of the Year for 2019!!! And I got to share it with my sister in love Kathryn, as she was gathering books for her very first classroom.
Thank you! This means to much!

Can’t find a book on our site? Why not try IndieBound*?
You’ll support other independent bookstores and Western Sky Books at the same time!
*note: There are several local (British Columbian) independent bookstores listed on the IndieBound site. However, for the time being, you must have a US ‘ship to’ address to ship your IndieBound purchases.
Western Sky Books values readers and the kind of book buying experience they expect. This means there are lots of places to sit and read a few pages or reflect on your purchases, our selection is wide and varied, and we host many literary events for you, your friends, and family to participate in.
We have a large children’s literature section so kids and young people can find their next favourite bed time story or multi-book series to snuggle under the covers with well past bedtime. Together, let’s encourage young readers to become the next generation of book lovers!
Western Sky Books provides space for local writers and publishers to launch new books. We’re a venue that connects writers to their readers and a community hub which encourages engagement and involvement in literature and writing community. Expect book clubs, writers’ groups, writing workshops, poetry readings, book launches and author signings. We have a gallery space which features local artists and provides a connection between the art and literary communities in the Tri-Cities.
Western Sky Books is the only used bookstore in the TriCities area of Metro Vancouver, and the only independent bookstore in Port Coquitlam.
Western Sky Books operates on Unceded Kwikwetlem First Nations and Katzie (Coast Salish) territories and lands. We acknowledge that we are settlers and guests in this territory. We commit to business practices and literary partnerships which work within a reconciliation framework. Western Sky Books endorses the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s ninety-four Calls to Action.
We love the printed page, and we know you do to!
