The Bookstore Plus

The Bookstore Plus is an independent bookstore located on the thriving Main Street of Lake Placid, N.Y.

Our second-generation, family-owned bookstore has been in the Olympic Village for more than 40 years. Nancy Beattie launched the business in 1973, opening a music and art store; four years later she bought an existing book shop, combining the two to form The Bookstore Plus. Today, Nancy’s daughter, Sarah Galvin, owns The Bookstore Plus with her husband, Marc.

We specialize in the best new releases; the largest selection of Adirondack literature anywhere, including guidebooks, local history, art books, fiction and non-fiction; children’s titles, from board books through young adult; and more.

Plus we offer art supplies, notebooks, writing implements and other materials to serve your own creativity. We also provide expert picture framing and regularly hold events, such as Skype author talks, children’s storytime and crafts, book signings and adult coloring nights.

The Bookstore Plus offers custom framing, along with a wide selection of ready-made frames and mats.
