Tecolote Book Shop

Tecolote—which means 'owl' in Náhuatl, or Aztec—refers to the owl's association, throughout mythology, with books and wisdom. The Tecolote Book Shop, which opened in 1925, has served the community for five generations so to call it a local gem would be an understatement. Its staff are superbly knowledgeable and love a good hunt: If you're searching for an out-of-print book or the perfect best-seller, magazine, audio book, stationery, journal, calendar, game, or puzzle, Tecolote is your place. Everything about the book shop is welcoming and relaxed, from its worn wooden chairs to its slump stone exterior.
