Who’d have thought, right here in the epicenter of all things tech, that a good old-fashioned neighborhood bookstore would actually be thriving? It’s true: Kepler’s Books and Magazines, our neighbor just down the block, fuels and feeds on the intellectual energy of Silicon Valley.
Of course, it’s not just any bookstore. This Menlo Park mainstay is considered one of the best indies in the country, a true cultural hub so beloved by locals that – in a brief economic downturn some years back – shoppers became stakeholders, ensuring Kepler’s kept the lights on. No trip to Menlo Park is complete without dropping by this literary landmark. Pick up a best-seller for yourself or a bedtime story for your favorite kid, browse an impressive collection of signed first edition works, or just meander the shelves checking out the fresh picks of Kepler’s well-read staff.
