Bookstore

Welcome to the world of La Librera, a space of words, books, and creativity, home to various worlds to learn, discover, and invent. 

In our bookstore you will find books in English, French, Spanish, and other languages. We sell mostly used books but also feature a number of selected new publications, mostly by Colombian independent publishers. Our main focus is literature, but we also have some humanities, social science, languages, and art-related titles. We aim to give visibility to writing of the Americas and the Greater Caribbean.
