The Village Bookstore and Gifts

The Village Bookstore is the surprising small-town bookstore. Located in beautiful Grand Rapids, Minnesota, we have been an independent bookseller for over 30 years. Regional books are our specialty. We offer a large selection of titles relating to Minnesota history, biographies, outdoor activities, nature, and much more.

We also carry the latest adult fiction and nonfiction and children's fiction and nonfiction. The store has expanded our cooking, romance, new releases, children's board books, nursery rhymes, classics, science, and baby journals.   You’ll find a wonderfully stocked children’s section filled with a wide variety of books from beloved classics to new favorites!  Our children’s department also has fun and educational games, puzzles, and activity kits.

In addition to books, the store is happy to announce it has expanded a large selection of Minnesota gifts, books for all ages, field guide tools, (maps, books,) camping and canoeing literature, and Minnesota produced products. Check out the new lines of gifts for babies, children's holiday gifts like books, arts, crafts, and hands-on learning tools. We are continuing to supply cookbooks and diet/health books with added ideas to complement the sections that you will find. The Village Bookstore also has an impressive new selection of puzzles, games, and gifts for all ages!

We pride ourselves on exceptional customer service and are happy to help each customer find the perfect book or gift!  If we don’t stock the title you’re looking for, we’ll gladly special order for you.  We place orders several times a week and there is no additional charge for titles shipped to the store!
