Yellow Dog Bookshop

We feel that a bookstore can be a community center, a rallying point for ideas and exchange of information.  Our shop is on Ninth Street in the heart of the District – this hotbed of independent businesses needs a bookshop to be complete, and we love adding to the cultural scene with author events, readings, and children’s story time.  We’re aware of the trend of e-readers and digital text, but we feel there remains something magical about finding a special book, whether it’s one you’ve been searching for or one that you just happen upon while looking for something else. The weight of a book in your hands, the texture of its pages; these are things a screen can’t give you. A bookshop, then, is a place where ideas are made concrete.

We want to build this bookshop into a Columbia institution where people can wander in and find something they didn’t know they were looking for – where someone can bring a piece of magic home with them.
