Your new independent, locally owned and operated bookstore!

Story on the Square is proud to offer new books-children and adult selections. We feature the hottest new fiction and a wide selection of non-fiction focusing on food, gardening, Southern history and culture. In the store, we have planned a calendar full of events for kids and adults. Our book clubs are free to join and cover a wide variety of interest. We want to be your favorite store to find the perfect gift that you can’t find anywhere else. Coming soon is The Rough Draft—a wine and beer bar tucked inside our store. We think a great book and the perfect draft or curated glass of wine is the best pairing for a relaxing evening. Grab a snack with your drink and head upstairs to our event space to enjoy music, art, or a featured author speaking about and signing his or her book.

We cannot wait to be your favorite place to shop, drink, and hangout with your smart and charming friends!



We have secured a temporary store site at 13 Keys Ferry Street at the old Ward Drug Store on the south side of the square. We will have a fully functioning store until our permanent location is ready to open. 






The temporary store hours will be:

Sun 12-5
M-W 10-5
Th-F 10-6
Sat 10-6


Later hours for special events

Come and see us in the New Year. We have new books arriving daily and loads of events planned.

Sarah San Juan and Ash Rogers will be at the store daily to help you select that perfect book for a beautiful spring day.
