About Us


OPEN 10-6 EVERY DAY AT 17 WEST MAIN ST - 802.464.5425 - bartbookvt@gmail.com

Bartleby's Books has been the area's independent bookstore since 1989. We are located in the heart of downtown Wilmington, VT, a unique shopping, recreation and dining destination in a village that is on the National Historic Register. Located close to Mount Snow, a popular skiing and snowboarding destination, Bartleby's serves locals and visitors to the region. 

We offer a wide variety of new books across most genres, as well as a carefully chosen selection of cards, gifts and games. Please come in for a visit, ask us for a suggestion or browse the shelves and stumble across a gem.  Our staff is particularly adept at assisting with presents for children or selecting a great read for you or a loved one.

Bartleby's serves Mocha Joe's coffee, brewed just down the road in Brattleboro. We also carry a wide variety of sodas and bottled water.

Bartleby's hosts local artists' work in our upstairs retail space. Openings change monthly. Please inquire if you are interested in showing your work.
