Merritt Bookstore Continues Longstanding Traditions
This shop is a place where you’ll find what you’re looking for—it’s filled to the brim with books for everyone, as well as toys, puzzles, games and small gifts.
The Merritt Bookstore is celebrating its second full year under the ownership of Kira Wizner, who has built upon the legacy left by founding owner Scott Meyer. “This shop is a place where you’ll find what you’re looking for—it’s filled to the brim with books for everyone, as well as toys, puzzles, games and small gifts,” she says.
She takes special pride in the store’s carefully curated book inventory. “The titles in our Parenting and Family section were chosen to support the health and development of children and families through mindful parenting,” she says. “We also carry titles reflecting the needs of society—books about social justice, about human rights. The store’s longstanding relationship with the New York Sheep and Wool Festivals ensures that we have a robust crafts section all year long. And for the holidays, we carry a full selection of books, giftwrap and cards.”
Under Wizner’s ownership, Merritt Bookstore has kept up its long tradition of hosting author talks and signings, and it regularly hosts classes and meetings. “This winter there will be a series of felting workshops held in our upstairs space, and book clubs continue to meet at the store,” she says. Anyone interested in forming a book club or staying up-to-date on all bookstore events can visit MerrittBookstore.com or sign up for the store newsletter.
