Our mission is to nurture connection, encourage learning, and inspire delight.
Morgenstern Books strives to offer opportunities for people to share experiences that help bring forth connection and a sense of unity. We envision a world illuminated by the sharing of books, ideas, and understanding.
Did you know? In the 1990's, the original Morgenstern's was a beloved community bookstore in Bloomington, IN, home of Indiana University. It was forced to close its business due to national chain competition coming into town. Twenty-some years later the national chains have left and Bloomington is starved for more local bookstores!
We're bringing Bloomington back to its roots and filling a longstanding void of local, community-driven bookstores in town. There couldn't be a better moment for Morgenstern's to step in as a shared community space to bring people together through books, art, coffee, and connection.
