What’s Happening

We are thrilled to officially announce that we have moved to a BIGGER and BETTER space!

Our new home is directly across the street at 747 Fort Street (the old Staples building). It has more space, a simplified layout and full accessibility (with an elevator and escalator to the lower floor), while still offering the same Russell Books feel and lots and lots of books!

We couldn’t be more excited and are so appreciative of all of your support that has allowed us to get to this level. A huge thank you to the Time Colonist for these two lovely articles covering the move, as well as to CBC for their great story and radio interview.

Our New 747 Fort Street Location

Our new location at 747 Fort Street is open to the public! Come visit us in our new home — our staff are happy to help you find the books you’re looking for.

Please note that the book trade counter is closed.

We have many wonderful memories of our old home from the past 28 years. We remember it fondly and we’re sad to say goodbye, but we look forward to all the new memories we’ll make. Thank you to our community for your endless support. We’re excited to welcome you to our new home!

We're Moving!

We are thrilled to officially announce that we are moving to a BIGGER and BETTER space! Our new home will be directly across the street at 747 Fort Street (the old Staples building). Opening in Fall 2019 it will offer more space, a simplified layout and will be much more accessible, with an elevator and escalator to the lower floor, while still offering the same Russell Books feel and lots and lots of books!
