Fables Books: Goshen's Truly Independent Bookstore ... Now Hiring!

Be a Part of this Story!

We know you're excited about a new bookstore in Goshen! (So are we) There are lots of ways that you can be involved in the process of making our bookstore a success. 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. 

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

We are offering a well-curated used and new book selection, as well as literary gifts and toys.

As a privately 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 will be offering a $5 coupon for each copy paper size box donated. See book donations page for what we will accept.

Collaborate with Us

We want to collaborate with our community in creative ways. Get in touch if you have an idea for collaboration. We'll get back with you as soon as we can.

  • Does your work require the ordering of books for book clubs, management teams, gifts?
  • Do you love to run book clubs, writing groups, or children's reading hours? 
  • Are you an expert and would like to do a talk in our new space especially in the fields of writing, literacy, science, art, and history?
  • Do you have a creative idea of how we can work together? 

Be Patient

We know you're excited, we can't wait either! An endeavor like this usually takes a year or so of planning, and we've done it in just a few months. Because we are starting from scratch, it may take some time to build up inventory for your favorite genre, but remember, we always do special orders.

Get excited and share, share, share!
