Porter Square Books

Nominated for: BEST Bookstore

Porter Square Books 25 White Street Cambridge MA (617) 491-2220

Porter Square Books has been recognized locally as one of the best new book stores in the city. The staff has years of experience running independent bookstores -- most recently in nearby Concord, MA. Staff members have a good deal of knowledge and experience with children's books. We love to read, so come in and talk books with us! Better yet, come in, get an excellent cup of coffee or tea (and a tasty goody or two) at Café Zing right in the store, and browse while you sip.
