The Next Chapter Bookstore, operated by Literacy Volunteers of Chautauqua County, is the only bookstore in the Fredonia area and is located directly next door to our Education Center.

One hundred percent of proceeds directly funds literacy programs. Reflecting our belief that literacy should be accessible to all, our bargain books are affordably priced. For just a few dollars, you can get a book and help change someone’s life.

Vintage and rare books
