East City Bookshop 

Established in 2016, the East City Bookshop offers friendly service and support for the literary arts at every reading level. Owner Laurie Gillman has always enjoyed exploring neighborhood bookstores. She’d wander the aisles of every bookstore to discover new authors. When her children grew older, she decided to open her own bookstore. Today, Laurie offers an array of genres at East City Bookshop. East City provides online ordering for your convenience. Conveniently grab your books from their pickup window any time Tuesday through Saturday between 1:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m.

Capitol Hill Books 

Standing three stories tall, Capitol Hill Books features first editions, rare titles, and quality used books. Founder Bill Kerr used to live in the upper-level of the bookshop while he ran the store downstairs, all while continuing to work for The Washington Post. Bill has since left, but the shop’s new owners have continued his relentless passion for books. They carry nearly every genre. They’re currently offering the Capitol Hill Books Mystery Box. Tell them what you like, and they’ll put together an unforgettable stack of books. Grab your Mystery Box curbside, or have it shipped straight to your door. 

Bridge Street Books 

Founded in 1980, Bridge Street Books is the oldest independently-owned bookstore in Washington DC. It boasts a carefully curated selection of trade, university, and small press publications. There’s always something new to discover, and the owners hope to keep the shop going for another 40+ years. Call or email your order to Bridge Street Books, then pick up your books curbside. 

After you’re done reading, head outside to enjoy our community’s natural beauty with a hike at the Suitland Bog Natural Area.
