Edwardsville , IL
Afterwords Books is a family owned and operated bookstore, proud to call Edwardsville home. We're a thread in our community, offering our customers both new and used books, a trade for credit program, free children’s story times, book clubs for all ages, a monthly documentary club, educational toys, unique gifts crafted from local artisans, and impeccable customer service, all in a relaxing, inviting environment. Afterwords is proud to belong to a community who understands that their individual spending choices dictate what their neighborhoods ultimately look like. They realize the importance of each individual’s commitment to nurture the community, to see their tax dollars directly benefit our city, that culture and diversity are meaningful, that our neighbors are all working together to make a difference. Our little bookstore cultivates the shop local movement by practicing what we preach and generously gives back to our schools, churches, and local charities.
