Books & Company is a bookstore located in downtown Prince George, BC. It has an excellent selection of books for all subjects and if you can’t find in the store, they will try to order it for you. Café Voltaire shares the bottom floor with the bookstore, so when you have picked out your book, you can sit there with a coffee and a treat while you read. Friday nights you can go to café Voltaire for a free show, usually featuring local talent. Upstairs is Artspace, which is used for all sorts of shows and such. Many shows in Artspace require purchasing tickets, but they aren’t expensive. Also upstairs are several shops and other offices. Along the walls of Artspace, there are pictures or paintings.
The owner supports the arts in Prince George and is welcoming to artists, writers, and musicians. The staff are more than willing to help anyone who comes in. All this make a pleasant experience, which is the great thing about books stores. I hope you have such a store near you and if you are in PG, you stop in for a visit.
