Welcome to the “best little bookstore in Canada!”

Curiosity House Bookstore & Gallery is celebrating its second year in our latest location at 178 Mill St. (next to the 100 Mile Store), Creemore and our nineteenth year in the village. We are committed to being "the best little bookstore in Canada"! If you haven't already visited us, we hope that you will do so soon - we have an expanded selection and the same friendly and knowledgeable staff. We carry something for everyone - from CanLit to contemporary, from award winners to crowd pleasers, and from children's classics to hot teen reads. Stop by, pick up the paper, find that next great read and chat for a while with our wonderful staff. We'd love to see you.

Subscribe to our monthly newsletter (scroll up) or go to our Events page to find out what's happening.

We have author signings both in the store and sometimes at outside venues offering a larger space.

We believe that a bookstore is a vital part of village life, and we love to participate in all Creemore village events, such as our Market Opening Day, the Children's Festival, Copper Kettle, the Creemore Festival of the Arts and Christmas in the Valley. Contact us for further details about these amazing events.

With a different artist every month in our Gallery, the opening on the first Saturday of the month is a chance to mingle and meet the artist.

For your convenience, we are open seven days a week . Sunday and Monday we are open from 10 AM to 4 PM, Tuesday to Friday we are open 10 am to 5 pm and Saturday we are open from 9 am to 5 pm. We are closed on Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year's Day, and are open from 10 am to 4 pm on all civic holidays.

For more information, drop by the store or give us a call at 705.466.3400.
