The Largest Independent Bookstore In Ohio, The Book Loft, Has More Than 500,000 Books
With the winter season in full swing and snow and ice lingering, stocking up on books is the perfect way to hunker down, slow down and enjoy the season.
Fortunately, Ohio is home to one of the nation’s largest independent book stores. Tucked away in central Ohio’s charming German Village, you’ll find the most enchanting bookstore that’s a seemingly never-ending maze of classic literature, modern day stories and a plethora of knowledge that book lovers only dream of. The Book Loft features 32 rooms of books—packed from floor to ceiling—that you simply have to see to believe.
