Bring a Love for the Written Word to Hooray for Books


In an era of mass online retailing, it can be a real pleasure to visit an actual bricks-and-mortar bookstore. That’s where Hooray for Books comes in. You can pick up a new mystery, biography, or science fiction novel for yourself at this Old Town Alexandria bookstore, or you can just spend a pleasant hour browsing the shelves. 

Hooray for Books also carries a huge selection of children’s and young adult literature, so it’s an especially good place to bring the whole family. The staff have a reputation for being friendly and well-acquainted with the shop’s selection, too, so don’t hesitate to ask for recommendations (especially if you’re seeking something at a specific reading level for a young reader). The shop also carries games, puppets, puzzles, and hosts a variety of special events, ranging from author visits to storytime sessions for kids. Check the website for a current calendar of events.
