Phenomenal news from a press release:

“DC’s newest bookstore, Walls of Books, is having a soft opening 12/12/15 in the Park View community on Georgia Avenue NW! The bookstore, with 2400 square feet, brings over 30,000 affordable books to the neighborhood, a book trade-in program for store credit, and a wide selection of Melissa & Doug® children’s toys.

“Walls of Books is excited to join the Park View, Petworth, and surrounding neighborhoods – providing social and economic value to the community and individuals through our affordable books and toys, community events and programs, and economic opportunities,” said Pablo Sierra, owner of Walls of Books-DC. “At least 99% of our books are quality used books at discounted prices. And with our trade-in and store credit program, you can often purchase our books at more than 75% off the retail price. The store also carries Meliessa & Doug toys and educational products – promoting eduction and creativity.”

The District is one of the most educated cities in the world – full of avid readers – and according to the latest National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP), the public schools have made considerable progress in reading and math skills – but more could always be done. Walls of Books® brings a wide selection of books to the neighborhood for those avid readers and for the aspiring child looking for new adventures and skills.

“We want to support the local reading and writing community by providing a family friendly environment where people can attend culturally diverse events, participate in community centered programs, and buy and trade our affordable books,” said Pablo. “This mission comes from my own love of reading and writing and what I’ve seen it do in my life – self-confidence, exposure to other’s ideas, and the need to explore our outer and inner worlds further…and now I have the opportunity to bring those same things, and hopefully more, to my community.”
Come in, check out the books and toys and bring in your own books for the “trade-in for store credit program.”
