Welcome!

sitting areaYou’ve found your way to The Galaxy Bookshop, a proudly independent bookstore located in downtown Hardwick, Vermont. We are believers in the written word, the power of stories and the importance of community. We believe that books are integral to all aspects of life, and we are honored to play a role in putting books into the hands of readers.

The Galaxy Bookshop carries a broad, hand-picked selection of books in all genres, for all ages, as well as a just as carefully chosen variety of cards, toys, puzzles, and literary-themed gifts. Browse our website to get to know us or, better yet, stop in and visit us when you’re in the area!

A Note To Returning Customers: You’ll notice that our website looks much different than the last time you visited. Not only have we changed the look of our website, it’s also true that we no longer offer online shopping. Although you can’t order directly through our site, we think you’ll find that we can offer equally convenient service by phone and email. Learn about placing orders and buying gift certificates. What you’ll still find at galaxybookshop.com? A full calendar of events, links to local authors, and wonderful staff recommendations. Have fun exploring the new site!
