Help Us Transform This Space

We're bringing the best selection of books to Logan Square with the opening of our third store this summer! Located at 2068 North Milwaukee Avenue, our Logan store will carry tens of thousands of titles for every interest that follow Open Books’ nonprofit model – books donated from all over Chicagoland, the sales of which support literacy programs for thousands of children and families.

We are asking all our friends to help financially support the store buildout. We have a $100,000 goal to convert an old furniture store into the best mission-driven bookstore in Chicago. Every dollar you provide will help to meet this goal and realize our vision.
