Parry Sound Books

Proud to be your community book shop since 1988
Knowledgable Staff - Service - Selection
Good Literature for Children & Adults


We chose Parry Sound to open a book shop because we were cottagers and decided this would be a place where we could raise our family, work for ourselves and still get to Queen Street for that urban fix when necessary.  In the spring of 1988 we registered the business and built an addition to our home that housed Parry Sound Books for the first five years. When the Beatty family restored and renovated the William Beatty Building in the downtown they invited us to become tenants. It seemed like a good idea – the children were a little older and more independent. Alan was happy to have the book shop location for an enlarged studio, and the move to the downtown meant increased space, staff and increased tourist trade. It has become the home of our business and a fixture in downtown Parry Sound.
