Looking for Used Books in Canmore?

In late June 2013, floods affected many businesses and residences in Canmore, including Second Story Books, a popular used bookstore and one of our oldest vendors. The store never reopened. Recently, Joy McLean of nearby Café Books leased a small space across the hallway from her main bookstore and has furnished it with beautiful wooden bookshelves that she has filled with a thoughtful selection of used books. This is the only used bookstore in the Canadian Rockies, and well worth visiting if you’re in Canmore.

The Demise of Second Story Books

Flooding has claimed one of our oldest vendors, Second Story Books in Canmore. At this point, the store’s future is uncertain, but we hope Heath and her staff all the best.
