Lock City Books
Lock City Books is a new, used, and bargain bookstore for all ages located at 8 Market Street in Lockport, New York. They regularly host community events, including storytimes, open mic night, and author readings. Their mission is to be a financially viable, independent bookstore dedicated to increasing accessibility and enjoyment of literature in Lockport through diverse titles, inclusive programs, and community service. Since opening in 2019, they have put a portion of our profit back into the community. Throughout the year, they hire local performers and musicians for events, donate bargain books to students in local Title 1 elementary school, host fun, free community events, lead donation drives and fundraisers for nonprofits in the area. They also donate books to nonprofits for story walks, basket raffles, etc. and run our Read With Rescues program, leading to 37 adoptions to date.
