People’s Book to Open This Summer in Takoma Park

General-purpose bookstore People’s Book will open in early summer at 7014-A Westmoreland Ave. in Takoma Park, according to an announcement from Main Street Takoma.

Over 10,000 books will be available at the store, with a particular emphasis on children’s literature, local interests, new releases, and independent publications.

The inventory will also include gifts related to books, as well as locally-roasted drip coffee, kombucha, and other beverages and treats.

Takoma Park is our family’s forever home, and we’re excited about providing readers of all ages with opportunities to explore, learn, and connect with their neighbors,” said Megan Bormet, People’s Book owner and former elementary school educator. “Helping kids and adults find books they love is what I like to do best, and I’m thrilled that we can do this at People’s Book.”

People’s Book plans to host children’s storytime, book readings, and other book-related events. Across the street from the store is Takoma Urban Park, a popular playground for Bormet family children.

Readers who are interested in joining the Republic of Readers program are encouraged to join now, which provides discounts and perks based on membership level and is free to join.
