Founded in 1894, Vroman's is an independent family-run bookstore, a literary landmark, and a community center. The bookstore hosts over 400 events a year, including author signings, launch parties, children's storytimes, craft classes, and trivia nights. With a strong history of philanthropy, Vroman's has supported many institutions and charitable causes and the Vroman's Gives Back program donates a portion of purchases to a local organization of a customer's choice.
