West Hartford Location

Our little Bookshop is growing!  

We are delighted to announce that River Bend Bookshop is expanding.  Our new shop is located at 161 Park Road, just down the street from our friends at Playhouse on Park and across from Plan B.  

River Bend Bookshop is now open in West HartfordOpening this Bookshop was a dream come true, and thanks to the incredible support of our community throughout the last four years we have not only survived, but thrived.  The West Hartford location features all the things you love about River Bend: a thoughtful selection of books for children and adults, gifts, games, stationery and toys, and our fabulous bookseller recommendations. 

We need a little time to settle into the new space before accepting web orders for pick up in West Hartford.  Stop by and place an order in person while we get our systems up and running!
