Welcome to Russell Books!
Canada's Largest Used & New Bookstore
Russell Books is located in the heart of downtown Victoria
on historic Fort Street. The store just celebrated its 55th birthday in Canada
and it's 25th in the wonderful book loving community of Victoria where it now
resides. Russell Books is passionately committed to making books affordable and
accessible, and to providing a community space where people can gather to
celebrate the written word and the thriving arts and culture scene in Canada.
The many family members, +40 staff, and two stores now offer over 16,000 square
feet of new, used, antiquarian, and out-of-print books, as well as a unique
selection of cards, journals, and calendars. In May of 2013 Russell Books
expanded once again to open the Vintage and Collectibles Floor. In the Vintage
section of the store events are held throughout the year with many wonderful
authors, musicians, and community members coming to speak and perform.

floor, and if inspiration eludes - just ask one of our staff for a recommendation.
As always, if we can't find what you are looking for right away we will add you

book! Whether you are new to our city (Welcome!) or one of our regulars (Hi
again!) the friendly staff at Russell Books (and Books on View) are always
eager to help you find great books.
