Help grow your bookshop!
Even before our shop opened, Let’s Play Books! worked to foster a sense of community. Today, we host over 100 in-store events each year, serving as a dynamic cultural center and resource for the neighborhood. Our ever-expanding and devoted customer base hail from throughout the Lehigh Valley. We also partner with many community organizations and schools for offsite events.
It’s been almost three years since we opened our doors, and our bookstore is at a critical moment in time. We are relocating (just down the street) to a larger space – a place that our experience tells us will be a perfect new home for our community bookshop. Our goal is to make our business sustainable, and we believe we can in our new location. However, the move is a big step up for us, and the growth comes at an expense.
Many of our customers have offered to help us over the years, emotionally, physically and financially. We are moving very fast and hope to raise these funds in the next few weeks. Thank you for your friendship, your consideration and your time!

Our literary steps will begin their transformation at the end of this month, so stay tuned!
Thank you again, and here is to a positive, happy, and healthy 2017 for all.
