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
LVCC sometimes receives donations of vintage and rare books, which are then researched and evaluated.
Vintage books valued at $20 or less can be found in our Vintage and Rare bookcase inside the bookstore.
Vintage books with a higher value can be found on our eBay page. As always, all proceeds fund our literacy programs.
The Next Chapter Bookstore includes a dedicated children’s collection and reading area where parents can share the joy of reading with their little ones.
