Books and Bookstores

Flashlight Books – Walnut Creek
Flashlight Books is an independent bookstore dedicated to promoting a sustained love of reading in children – particularly in their teen and pre-teen years, when they most need the messages of empathy and the diverse viewpoints that books provide. We are a space that is community-focused and celebrates curiosity, passion, and learning. In addition to being a store for books, we will host events, create a tutoring space, and run programs for kids and teens. Flashlight Books aims to be a place where families feel welcomed, kids feel safe, and young adults feel supported.
