Here are three great bookstores in Hendersonville to visit today.

We can imagine life on desert planets. We can imagine charging into battle during wars of the distant past. And we can imagine journeys to the center of the Earth and where the sidewalk ends. But try as we might, we can’t imagine a world without bookstores.

Bookstores often serve as the spine of the community, offering structure from which possibilities grow in every direction. And local independent bookstores often offer space for community congregation and education, as well.

This holiday season, consider supporting your local bookstores—and local authors!—by giving the gift of imagination. Here are three great bookstores in Hendersonville to visit today.

Blue Ridge Community College Bookstore

If you’re not a BRCC student, you may not think to visit a campus bookstore this season. But rest assured, the Blue Ridge Community College Bookstore has more than just textbooks. Visit them for computers, electronics, notebooks, calculators, writing supplies, apparel, and more! Enjoy holiday discounts on study break must-haves for students of all ages. Shop in person, online, or on their app.
