Open Books Pilsen stocks a huge selection of books especially suitable for families and educators. The warehouse-style setup also features books starting at $1 and special sales events tied to neighborhood celebrations.

The legacy project of Pablo Helguera’s Librería Donceles is also hosted at Open Books Pilsen. The city’s only collection of used Spanish-language books is available for any price the buyer deems appropriate, with inventory constantly being replenished from book donations.
