Welcome to Russell Books! 

Russell Books is located in the heart of downtown Victoria on historic Fort Street. In 2016 the store 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.

Check out the 'staff reads' page on our website, or sign up for our eNewsletter  to get up-to-date info on our store and events hot off the press! Still don't know what to read? Come in and browse the tables on the main 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 to our request list so we can get in touch with you as soon as we find your 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.
