Find it at your local book store

Nov 27, 2015

Local bookstores are becoming a bit of an anomaly. However, with a little searching, these one-of-a-kind shops can still be found within a short drive of Villa St-Jean Apartments (4150 boulevard St-Jean & 51 rue Hasting). Find a great new book at one of today’s bookshops featured by the Timbercreek Communities blog team.

Librairie Clio

Librairie Clio (245 North Saint Jean) is an independently owned English bookstore. The TC Hastings BookStoreshop features an impressive selection of fiction, non-fiction, classics and children’s books. Before you go, be sure to check out the array of greeting cards and gifts also offered here. Villa St-Jean Apartments are only a 10-minute drive from this Pointe-Claire shop.

Drawn & Quarterly Bookstore

Not only can you find an excellent selection of books at Drawn & Quarterly Bookstore (211 Bernard Ouest), but this is also a fun place to go for book-related events. This local library often hosts poetry nights, readings and workshops for the public. Plan on a 25-minute drive from Villa St-Jean Apartments to attend an evening event at this Montreal favourite.

Book Market

Book Market (3343 Boulevard des Sources), just over a five-minute drive from Villa St-Jean Apartments, has eight stores scattered primarily throughout Ontario. The store specializes in used books and is the largest of its kind in North America. For the environmentally conscious reader, this is a guaranteed good choice.

The Word

Located in the heart of downtown Montreal, The Word (469 Rue Milton) is perhaps one of the city’s most famous independent bookstores. It has a reputation for attracting students from nearby McGill University. If you are passionate about supporting local bookstores, give this second hand retailer a visit the next time you are in Montreal, which is about a half-hour drive from Villa St-Jean Apartments.
