Our collection leans toward the academic, but we have thousands of books, on just about everything from Austen and anarchy to Zola and zoology. Our books are generally half-price, including recent publisher's overstocks. Don’t look for our catalogue on line; we’re not that bookstore. But if we can’t find the book you’re looking for, we’ll find you a better one you didn’t know you wanted.
The Montague Mill is also home to Sawmill River Arts and the newest outpost of the Turn It Up! music and movie empire. There is great food and drink all day and deep into the night at the astonishing Lady Killigrew Cafe. And this spring the Bookmill welcomes The Alvah Stone Restaurant and Bar just downstairs from us.
We have a weekly movie night in the winter, and concerts and performances the rest of the year. The Bookmill is unique, a lovely place where you can happily be lost for hours. We've been lost for years now.
