About Us

Selling good books to good people in Sitka, Alaska, since 1976.

While we are first and foremost a bookstore, we also offer a variety of goods that are great for gifting family, friends, or even yourself! Candles, games, bags, blankets, and book-themed apparel. Come for a browse, leave with the perfect scented candle for your reading nook!

Old Harbor Books was established in 1976 by a group of three book-loving local families. Today, the bookstore is just down the street from its original location, and directed by most of the same folk.
