Eight Cousins presents for sale a distinctive collection of quality books, chosen to offer culture, fun, beauty, insight and knowledge on many topics from the world over. Carefully selected programs, music, toys, and books for adults extend the children’s books that are the historic core of our collection.
We provide an uncommon level of friendly, honest, knowledgeable service to our customers in a clean, attractive, convenient place of business. We believe that children, reading and imagination are fundamental elements of a healthy community, and we strive to serve their best interests.
Our collection — this unique grouping of books — is the most important thing we have to offer. You can find books to buy anywhere, but this thorough and thoughtfully assembled group of books is one of a small handful in North America. We present it to you with pride.
The book and gift collections are very carefully selected and maintained. There are now nearly 20,000 titles in our stock list, of which around 12,000 are in the store on any given day. We are glad to special order any book in print, and most orders can be filled in 2-5 days.
