Welcome to Western Sky Books!

“You see, bookshops are dreams built of wood and paper. They are time travel and escape and knowledge and power. They are, simply put, the best of places.” ― Jen CampbellThe Bookshop Book

Western Sky Books values readers and the kind of book buying experience they expect. This means there are lots of places to sit and read a few pages or reflect on your purchases, our selection is wide and varied, and we host many literary events for you, your friends, and family to participate in.

We have a large children’s literature section so kids and young people can find their next favourite bed time story or multi-book series to snuggle under the covers with well past bedtime. Together, let's encourage young readers to become the next generation of book lovers!

Western Sky Books provides space for local writers and publishers to launch new books. We’re a venue that connects writers to their readers and a community hub which encourages engagement and involvement in literature and writing community.  Expect book clubs, writers’ groups, writing workshops, poetry readings, book launches and author signings. We have a gallery space which features local artists and provides a connection between the art and literary communities in the Tri-Cities.

Western Sky Books is the only used bookstore in the TriCities area of Metro Vancouver, and the only independent bookstore in Port Coquitlam.
