Our Review

A Book Lover’s Dream.

The Book Loft is an impressive book store located in the Barrington Plaza selling a wide range of books for anyone who loves reading, from children right up to senior citizens. The store opened in 1974 and has since become a favorite for both local and visiting book lovers. The overall atmosphere is both inviting and charming, with a cozy spot to sit while browsing through favorite picks. Friendly and knowledgeable staff will offer a helping hand whenever you need it, and even suggest the perfect read should you feel stuck.

You would be hard-pressed to find a bookstore with as wide a selection as the Book Loft. The children’s section is well-stocked with fun and easy reads that both parents and children will enjoy. If you can’t decide between books, you can count on the staff to help you out. Chances are you’ll like what they pick out for you; they are book lovers too, and they read what they sell so you can trust their choices. One of the best features of this Great Barrington bookshop is the pre-order offers. If you’re excited about a book that hasn’t been released yet, you could check The Book Loft website to see if they have it on offer. You might be lucky and snatch yourself a signed copy of the book!

There are lots of things to do in Great Barrington. A six-minute drive from The Book Loft will take you to the Berkshire Playwrights Lab where you can watch staged readings of plays written by accomplished playwrights from all over America. After watching the action, the audience gets to have a talkback with the playwright and director. Bizalion’s is another great stop. Just a 9-minute drive away from the bookstore, Bizalion’s offers French delicacies and hearty Berkshire food that you are bound to love. You could sit in for the full Bizalion’s experience, or order out and stock up on some tasty bites to munch on as you read your new book.
