Book Shopping in Fox Chase

Surprisingly enough with the artsy appearance of downtown Fox Chase with the Blooming Artist Studio, Iconic Gallery, a soon to open design studio in Fox Chase Plaza and our small restaurant row there is not an independent bookstore. Yet there are a few places you can get your book fix in Fox Chase.


Ryerss Museum and Library located at 7370 Central Avenue offers two venues for your book fix. On the first Saturday of every month The Friends of Ryerss sponsors a used book sale in the basement of the museum. Their offerings are eclectic and are priced individually and by the bag. In the main library there is ongoing vintage book sale where you may find that jewel you have been looking for.  For more information visit Ryerss on line at: http://www.ryerssmuseum.org/

In the heart of Fox Chase, The Thrift Shop, recently renovated, has an expanded book offering at 7963 Oxford Avenue.
