Welcome to Bookmamas!

We are a new & used bookstore that specializes in Indiana books and authors.  Located in the historic district of Irvington on the east side of Indianapolis, we bring you the adventure of a neighbor bookstore as well as provide a gateway to many local independent shops, restaurants and music venues.  Our space is shared with Irvington Vinyl record shop which offers an extensive inventory of new & vintage vinyl records, CDs and cassettes.  Please check our calendar for all upcoming events and we hope to see you in the neighborhood very soon. 

Please Note:

Bookmamas will NOT be purchasing ANY used books until further notice.
