There is nothing like a great independently owned bookstore and Bayfield, Wisconsin is fortunate to have one of the best.
Apostle Island Booksellers, located in the heart of this small community, specializes in carrying books focused on the regional culture, history, natural surroundings, and more. While you will still find the best seller novels and NY Times favorites, you’ll also find numerous books about the Apostle Islands, Bayfield History, Ojibwa History, the Chequamegon Bay and Lake Superior. Looking for some trail guides for hiking in the area or perhaps nautical maps? They’ve got them! Their inventory truly speaks to the “sense of place” along the South Shore of Lake Superior.
They carry both fiction and nonfiction written by regional authors. This often provides wonderful opportunity for one of their “author reads”. If unable to find that special book you’ve heard about, they are happy to provide special order services. And of course there are a number of book clubs, locals gathering together after reading a book for spirited discussion.
Visiting Bayfield and looking for that NY Times or Minneapolis Star Tribune? During the summer months, they are the place to go! Pick up your paper and head across the street to Big Water Coffee – a perfect way to start your day. Or pick up that fiction novel you’ve been wanting to read before heading to the beach – the epitome of relaxation.
Enjoy the beautifully renovated building along with locally designed murals. The setting is welcoming, the owners and staff are wonderful and the reading is endless.
From the Author: To be able to patronize an independent bookseller is important to me. This locally owned business is the kind of bookstore that seems in some areas to be disappearing. We all know how important it is to shop locally, supporting the regional economy. The beauty of this business is that they give back just as much to the community, whether sponsoring special events or offering Teacher Discounts. Apostle Islands Booksellers provide a great business with heart and soul.
