Old Town Books Celebrates New Chapter This Weekend

Old Town Books, a book shop near the waterfront at 104 S. Union Street, is celebrating one year in business this weekend.

On Saturday, Nov. 23, the book store is celebrating its one year anniversary with a variety of events throughout the day. The event will feature cake, free storytime at noon, with sing-alongs and special happenings throughout the day.

The book shop started as a pop-up shop last November in the Alexandria Economic Development Partnership’s pop-up program, according to Alexandria Living Magazine. The store found its new, permanent home in May.

Every purchase on Saturday will come with a free bookmark and sticker, according to the website.

The bookstore has an active book club and running lists of current favorites by employees.
