National Book Award winner Louise Erdrich, author of many amazing books,

prides itself on being locally owned and independently operated, and it has
been a neighborhood staple for fifteen years. It's a great spot for kids
- complete with a birchbark reading nook and a great book selection. Throughout

Whether you're a
mystery fan, a non-fiction connoisseur, or a sci-fi aficionado, Birchbark Books
is the place for you. Stop in and say hi - it's worth the trip.
