About

About Our Bookstores:

Located in the heart of downtown Mystic, Connecticut, Bank Square Books has been a cornerstone of the community since 1988 and has been under the current ownership since 2006. We have expanded throughout the years and now occupy two storefronts on Main Street. 

Our Mission Statement:

Bank Square Books is a locally owned, fiercely independent bookstore committed to providing quality books, and audiobooks for all types of readers—as well as gifts, toys, and cards. We believe a bookstore’s main purpose is to serve its community. In addition to providing a welcoming space for author events, children’s storytimes, book clubs, and workshops, we strive to support our community by sourcing the majority of our food and beverages from local vendors, donating money and books to local nonprofits, and hosting author events at local schools. Our community comprises a wide range of backgrounds, identities and beliefs, and all are welcome in our store.
