About Us

The Robin's Nest Bookshoppe is a dream that has been a long time coming to fruition. We're working tirelessly in order to expand our offerings and make our customers' experience even better. We’re proud of how far we’ve come, and have loved meeting so many of you in the early weeks of opening.


Our collections are being carefully curated, and we are asking you to give us input as to what you would like to see us carry at the Robin's Nest.  We want this to truly be a community bookstore; one where you can not only discover your next favorite read but where you can also share your favorite authors with the community.  


As we continue to grow and develop the Robin's Nest, both in its brick and mortar location and online, we look forward to being able to meet more of you and help you as delve into the wonderful world of books!

The Maid by Nita Prose

Mystery

A Clue-like, locked-room mystery and a heartwarming journey of the spirit, The Maid explores what it means to be the same as everyone else and yet entirely different—and reveals that all mysteries can be solved through connection to the human heart.
