Hello and WELCOME!

The Book Corner is a family owned, independent bookstore located downtown on the square in beautiful Bloomington, Indiana. In our store you will find current best sellers, notable classics, a huge selection of puzzles, children’s books, plush toys, specialty greeting cards and unique gifts in a cozy neighborhood space.

The Book Corner was founded in 1964 by James (Jimmy) and Barbara (Bobbie) Spannuth. Over the years, you have likely met many of their children, grandchildren and even their great-grandchildren working in the store!

The owner of the Book Corner, Margaret Spannuth Taylor, is dedicated to offering you a vast selection of books and unique gifts. It is very important to Margaret and store manager Patty to maintain a personal connection with their customers. 

Need a reading recommendation or help ordering a special title? A member of our friendly staff is happy to help.

We are so grateful to our loyal local customer base which has allowed our bookstore to thrive for four generations.
