We love the printed page, and we know you do too!
Storefront opened November 6, 2017
Sunday, Monday: 11am-4pm
We value readers and the kind of book buying experience they expect – which means we keep hours that reflect your busy life, 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. We’ll have story time circles, birthday parties, and reading clubs to encourage young readers to become the next generation of book lovers.
Western Sky Books provides a vibrant and exciting space for local writers and publishers to launch new books. We’re a venue that connects writers to their readers. We’re 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.
Western Sky Books’ website and social media presence reflect our vision and provide web-based literary hubs which we hope will mirror the lively in-store experience.
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 Coast Salish territory. 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.
