Fables Books: Goshen's Truly Independent Bookstore

Be a Part of this Story!

We believe each story matters: yours, ours, Goshen's, old, new, spoken, and written. There are lots of ways that you can be involved in Fables Books story. Even though a bookstore sat in the space the store is occupying, we started from scratch; building inventory and a business from the ground up. 

Our promise to you is that it will reflect our community in beautiful ways. We want to provide a place of connection for our community, an inclusive and safe space for everyone, regardless of age, race, gender, political beliefs, etc. 

We offer a well-curated used and new book selection, as well as literary gifts.

As a independently owned bookstore, we aim to be agile, innovative, and reflective of our community. 

So, how can you be involved in this bookstore?

Donate your gently used books.

Donations will be accepted at Fables Books (215 S Main Street) during business hours: Tuesday through Friday 11am - 5pm and Saturdays 10am - 3pm. We offer a $5 coupon for each copy paper size box donated. See book donations page for what we will accept.
