Serving the community for 20 years, Forever Books has been often voted the "Best Place to Buy Books in Southwest Michigan" by the readers of the Herald Palladium.  We’re known for our exceptional service and knowledgeable staff, who are always ready to recommend a great read!

We have a wonderful selection of adult fiction, non-fiction, and classics as well as literature and book-themed gifts and clothing.  Our large children's section offers books for all ages, games, toys, and baby gifts. We offer complimentary gift wrapping and shipping services. Looking for something not on our shelves? If you call by 11:30 Monday through Friday, most books arrive the next business day by 3pm. You can also shop locally 24/7 on our website!

Our Forever Friends Book Club is our customer loyalty program: for every $100 spent in the store, you receive $5 off your next purchase! No cards or anything to keep track of, we do it for you!

We host author talks, book signings, storytimes, and other events throughout the year. Check out our website, Facebook page, (or the "events" tab above) to see what's happening!
