White Birch Books
White Birch Books is proudly celebrating 25 years this year! That’s 25 years of great customers, great conversations and great reads. We are very much looking forward to the next 25.
White Birch Books is a full service bookstore located in North Conway Village, within walking distance of the park and playground. We are set back from the road just that little bit, so sometimes you have to look for us. But once found, we try to be memorable. We have a full story and a half of books, cards and gifts and cater to children and adults, locals and visitors as well as avid readers and dabblers.
We carry a complete complement of all the latest bestsellers, hot reads and literary stars – complete with our own reviews, as well as a comprehensive local section, a fantastic children’s department and a well-stocked and unique card department. In a nutshell – we’ve got it all, along with a staff of readers who are ready, willing and able to assist!
We look forward to seeing you!
About White Birch Books:
White Birch Books is owned and operated by Laura Cummings and has been serving the Mt. Washington Valley since 1992. Celebrated as the Best Bookstore in the Valley, White Birch prides itself on its staff, selection and awesome customers.
White Birch is open year-round, seven days a week, for all your reading needs. Although we carry many of the hot titles, we don’t have everything, so we order on a regular basis and can restock or special order quickly. We will also help search for and order out of print books!
We have two standing book groups at the store that meet every month. The Mystery Book Club meets the second Thursday of every month and the ‘Regular’ book club meets every fourth Thursday. Both discussions take place at the store and start at 7 p.m. They are open to the public and always draw a wonderful group of readers. Join us!
In addition to the book groups, White Birch hosts a robust series of author events – including presentations, signings and author luncheons. These events give readers a chance to connect with authors and hear directly about the books, how they are written and published and get a little insight into the authors themselves.
White Birch works with many community partners, including One Book One Valley, which annually puts on the community read. This year we are reading One-in-a-Million Boy by Monica Wood and the culminating event is scheduled for Thursday, October 26, at 7 p.m. at the Kennett High School Auditorium. Free and open to all, this event is a great opportunity for readers to join together in a common discussion.
At White Birch Books, we know you have many options for your book buying. We hope that you will enjoy or hand-picked selection of books, cards and gifts. As with other independent businesses, everything in the store was personally selected with our customers and our area in mind.
White Birch Books is located just south of the park, next to Pinkham Real Estate and across from TD Bank. We encourage you to stop in and enjoy yourself. Take a browse through the bestsellers, the bargain books or the local section. Enjoy your time and relax in our comfortable surroundings. And if you have questions – ask! Laura, Nichole, Alex, Barbara, Karyl or John would all be happy to help!
