Annie's Book Stop of Worcester

The little bookstore that's bigger on the inside

One festival of winter ends, with the last night of Hanukkah behind us, but there are still many reasons to celebrate this season of light, as we move towards the shortest day of the year.

Speaking of the Winter Solstice, we’ve got quite a few books on the topic in our children’s area and on display on our publisher selections shelf.


We had a wonderful time with author and songwriter J. Anthony Garreffi as he read from I CAUGHT SANTA and hosted a singalong of holiday songs.  Autographed copies are available for purchase, and don’t forget – we do mail order as well!

Here is a quick reminder of our holiday hours:

Mondays and Tuesdays:         9:00 AM – 9:00 PM

Wednesdays and Thursdays:  9:00 AM – 8:00 PM

Fridays and Saturdays:           9:00 AM – 9:00 PM

Sundays:                                 9:00 AM – 7:00 PM


We will be closing at 5:00 PM on Christmas Eve, and will be CLOSED on Christmas.
