Orphan Books comes to the north end

Agricola Street store now open.

Posted By on Thu, Jul 19, 2012 at 1:53 PM

Recently opened Orphan Books (2394 Agricola St, 425-5013) is bringing affordable used books to the north end. Owner Morgan Dambergs wants to provide used science and young adult fiction in particular for her customers.

The quaint store is stacked with a collection of books that come from book sales and friends. She has books that range from the vampire literature of Anne Rice to the quirky fiction of Tom Wolfe to young adult novels written by Louise Rennison. Dambergs also hopes to add some graphic novels to her collection soon.

“It’s a little on the younger side,” says Dambergs, of her supply. Damberg, whose mother and brother own the building, was given the front half to use as she pleased, and being a book enthusiast, a used bookstore just seems natural.

“I love books” says Dambergs, cheerfully.

Dambergs is selling books for $1 - $10, in hopes of competing with the e-book market. In addition, she is willing to buy books from customers who are looking to get rid of some novels.

The store will be open Wed-Sat weekly, so drop by to peruse for some summer reading.
