Community Bookstore is opening a second outpost: Terrace Books!
Terrace Books will be a (mostly) used bookstore in Windsor Terrace, Brooklyn.
Terrace Books will be located at 242 Prospect Park West, two blocks south of Prospect Park. To get here by subway, take the F/G trains to the 15th Street/Prospect Park stop.
Soon! Terrace Books is taking over from Babbo’s Books, a six-year-old store specializing in used books. A grand opening party is being planned for June.
What to expect at Terrace Books?
A considered selection of used books, a few new books, books to give as gifts (especially around the holidays), kids’ books, and more
Quick and easy delivery of new titles from Community Bookstore by bicycle
All the out-of-print books and vintage dust jackets you can handle
And for Babbo’s customers, we’ll honor your credits and gift certificates.
Why used? Why now?
Leonora Stein, the wonderful owner of Babbo’s books, was ready to move on to other things and we wanted to make sure a bookstore stayed in Windsor Terrace. Selling used books provides us with an opportunity to serve up interesting, affordable books and to recycle some of the books that overflow from our customers’ shelves. Plus, Windsor Terrace is great. Dub Pies and Terrace Bagels are neighbors and The Double Windsor and Rhythm and Booze will be our local bars. Fun literary history: Isaac Asimov wrote above his father’s candy store in Windsor Terrace.

We look forward to seeing you in Windsor Terrace this summer.
