Books Around the Corner is downtown Gresham’s one stop independent new and used bookshop. We also have non-book items such as greeting cards, bookish shirts, journals, and more. Launched as a social entrepreneurship by writer, librarian, and avid reader Stephanie Rose Csaszar. She is a former librarian but this past shows in everything she does with Books Around the Corner. From the carefully curated collection to the now TWELVE book clubs she offers to the community.

We sit in the heart of downtown Gresham filled with creative expression and a heartfelt community vibe. Down the street from the two of the town’s indie coffee shops, next door to a board game and puzzle store, and beautiful Tsuru Island Park. Our quaint but productive event space fosters the spirit of the community through acoustic music performances, book clubs, and a writers group. We also host private meetings and events and invite daily creative expression in our community space.

We believe in quiet reading nook and a captivating read. We also believe by supporting community and sharing art, thought, and common interest it will yield positivity and happiness.



We can order new books for you that we don’t have in stock at no additional charge. We also can pre-order books for you so they are at our shop the day they are released! If you need quicker we can order with a small shipping fee of $5.00 per order.
