About Us

It’s hard to believe, but we have been in our new location at 72 East Main Street in Webster for over three years!! Our bright, open space features extra room for even more books & unique gifts, extra seating in our cafe area, off-street parking and is fully accessible, including for wheelchairs. We ask you to respect everyone’s safety and not enter the store if you are feeling ill or have been in close contact with anyone testing positive for COVID-19.

A little history about us: Booklovers’ Gourmet opened in March 1995 by current owner Debra Ostrokolowicz Horan with the goal of establishing a cultural oasis in her hometown of Webster, MA, sharing her love of literature and the arts while supporting local talent in a friendly atmosphere where everyone feels welcome. Despite some real challenges and ups & downs, we are here thriving 28+ years and counting-thanks to the wonderful community support! You will find thousands of new and gently used books, from the hard to find to current bestsellers, and a curated selection of staff picks. Since we cannot possibly carry every book published, we are happy to special order any title for you at no extra charge. Alongside our wide selection of books, feel free to browse our hand-picked unique gifts including journals, bookmarks, pottery, local art, gemstone jewelry, incense, handcrafted soaps & soy candles, jigsaw puzzles and children’s toys to name a few.

Now you can order gift certificates online!! Just choose your amount below and we will email your gift certificate right to your inbox or mail to recipient of choice. Thank you for supporting your local, independent bookstore!
