Did you catch our article in the Park Cities People? What started as a Covid-era fundraiser has become an anticipated annual event! Second Chapter Bookstore sells gently used donated books to the community to raise funds for our local library.

The Friends of the UP Public Library has been fortunate enough, through generosity of landlords, volunteers, and YOU the community, to be back for our 4th 90-day pop up. Come visit us while you can!

One correction on this great article: we are closed Tuesdays AND Fridays.

The Friends of the University Park Public Library is thrilled to announce that Second Chapter Bookstore will be popping up again this year, opening its doors on Saturday, October 7 from 10am-4pm. Second Chapter will sell gently used, donated books, with proceeds benefiting the University Park Public Library.

Conceived during 2020's quarantine, Second Chapter Bookstore has become a staple in our community for the past three years, allowing patrons, neighbors, and volunteers to come together and share a love of books while raising funds in support of the library. We are thrilled to launch this pop up for a fourth year.

Second Chapter will be popping up again in Snider Plaza, at 3412 ROSEDALE. We are located between Christy M Boutique and Ben’s Cookies and across from Buff City Soaps. The store will be expanding our hours to 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Saturday and 1 p.m.-4 p.m. on Sunday from October 7 to mid January. We are also happy to take requests via email or Instagram messenger.

For the most up to date information on hours, offerings, programs, and bookish fun at Second Chapter, please follow us on Instagram We look forward to seeing you soon.

We have been keeping a secret and are THRILLED to announce that Second Chapter Bookstore will be popping up AGAIN this year, opening its doors on Saturday, October 15 from 10am-4pm. Second Chapter will be popping up in the same space at 6916 SNIDER PLAZA, next to East Hampton Sandwich Co. and Short Stop. The store will be in operation from October 15 to January 14 on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.

Second Chapter will sell gently used, donated books, with proceeds benefiting the University Park Public Library.

Conceived during 2020's quarantine, Second Chapter Bookstore became a staple in our community in both 2020 and 2021, allowing patrons, neighbors, and volunteers to come together and share a love of books. We are thrilled to continue what we started for our third year.

This reopening would not have been possible without our dedicated board members, city officials, and community members who generously donated their time, resources, and expertise to make this a reality. We look forward to welcoming you back to our updated space and sharing our love of books and reading!
