Lake Forest Book Store, Inc.



About Us

Lake Forest Book Store was opened in 1949 by a group of local women who decided that this small North Shore community needed a book store. It is now located in the cornerstone space directly across from the LF train station.
LFBS actively serves the community with evening book reviews and by hosting numerous author events throughout the year.
