Galápagos Books has been one of Westchester’s leading independent book stores since 1987.

We are pleased to offer more than 10,000 book titles for every interest, occasion, and gift-giving need.

We have foreign language books, children/teen books, and a range of best-sellers.

We have an extensive collection of author and illustrator signed editions.

We also offer readings, author and illustrator book signings, and a variety of social events.

So stop by, take a look around, and feel free to ask our helpful staff (or me) for suggestions.

We hope to see you soon.

This cozy little independent antidote to the major chains has an excellent selection of multi-cultural literature (everything from board books to novels) in Spanish, Italian, Japanese, French, and German. Special emphasis is paid to the readers-of-tomorrow, with regularly scheduled story times and author visits.
