Opened in 1978, the Fountain Bookstore is an independent, general, full-service bookstore serving the Metro Richmond area and the world!  

Fountain hosts more author programming than any other entity in the state of Virginia.  Check it out!  We also ship these autographed copies worldwide.

You will find enthusiastic booksellers happy to talk about their favorite books at Fountain and you will also find a quirky selection of cards, gifts, and more!

Richmond Magazine did a nice feature on the store's history.  You can find that here.
