Our Story

Napa Bookmine opened its doors in downtown Napa on Friday the 13th, September 2013. In spite of our superstitious start date, we've since grown to hold over 25,000 books - used and new - and feature a year round calendar of community events including author events, book clubs, game nights + more! It's our hope to provide a welcoming, safe, inspiring place for our community to gather and celebrate the love of books. There's something for everyone through Bookmine's doors!

We opened our second location within the bustling Oxbow Public Market in 2016. Located between Hudson Greens & Goods and Eiko's, our market stall offers all new books and an expanded gift selection including greeting cards, convenient sundries, and other unique, fun items. We consider this shop to be our little way of sneaking more books into highly populated public spaces ;) 

The latest addition to the Bookine family, Main Street Bookmine, opened its doors in St. Helena on Friday, November 29th, 2019. Located in the old Main Street Books location, our third shop features new and used books and an assortment of goods. We intend to host an year-round events and community gatherings in this space too including author events, book clubs, writing groups, and more. 

Whether you're a local to the Napa Valley or simply visiting Wine Country, we invite you to stop by any of our stores to say hi and grab a good book (or two - we won't judge).

Be subversive; read more books!
