Cozy, Warm and Independently Owned
We are closed today, March 2, 2014, due to the weather.
Please stay warm and safe!
Main Street Books opened under new ownership on February 15th, 2014.
We are grateful to Jim and Vicki Erwin for their support during the transition, and will continue to operate the store in much the same way. We very much look forward to meeting existing and new customers alike.

At Main Street Books we specialize in St. Charles' local history and guidebooks, Western history (including Civil War and Lewis and Clark) and children's books, but our store inventory includes all categories. We also offer selected used books.
We host two book clubs each month and frequent special events. Don't forget our Frequent Buyer Program. Buy 12 books and receive the 13th free (average of prior 12 purchases). Ask for your card today.
The store is located in the Historic District in St. Charles, Missouri. You can find directions on the sidebar to the left. Our building is more than 190 years old and was the residence of the first Secretary of State of Missouri, William Pettus.
