fabulous . . . the Young Adult Book Club at the Moravian Bookstore is just one of anumber of community outreach programs available from our Main Street bookshop. Stephanie is a terrific role model for all things literary and inspires young readers through book selections, discussions and author visits. We love our bookstore, the book sellers, and their book reccommendations.

A fanciful bookstore experience!

I was visiting Bethlehem in Dec 2007 for the Moravian College Christmas Vespers. My friend's daughter was a nursing student at the time, and her mom insisted I come down for the school's magnificent Christmas service. I'm so glad I did!

I was equally glad we were poking around downtown before the service and we went into the Moravian Bookstore. I'm always at home in a bookstore, but in yours I felt the wonder and delight of a young child on Christmas morning! There were so many nooks and crannies to discover within your store, and as exciting as each was, I burned to move on and explore the next. You are what every bookstore should be!
