The customer service here is wonderful. Whenever I have had a question about a book, or needed a recommendation, the staff here has been highly knowledgeable. Here's one example: I once came into the store, and described my mother-in-law

The bookstore is a bit unclean but the books in the shelves are well organized and neatly packed together. I found a great selection of books that I had never heard of but seemed interesting in a section called Just Released. It was comfortable sitting out in back and reading in fresh air. This bookstore isn't a bookstore without it's friendly staff.

The floors in the community bookstore on 7th ave is full of dirt and scratches. It seems as if noone has cleaned up in years. There are many bookshelves full of books from many genres, but many of the books have been used. There should be a seperation of the old and new books, instead of having to sort through the pile. However, the price is cheap enough to buy books for reading on the bus.

This book store makes you feel like you are somewhere completely different. They are very helpful. I love their "no cellphone" policy. They have a great garden in the back too, as well as couches where you are encouraged to sit and read. It is a wonderful contrast to the mega Barnes and Nobles a few doors down.

The Community Bookstore is a step into another world with an excellent blend of the latest good reads, the classics . . . poetry, fiction, memoirs, travel, etc. The owner of the bookstore is so knowledgeable about authors and books, she can give you great recommendations based on what she knows you enjoy and also steer you in directions that you might not have gone in on your own. The shop is quaint - not too large, not too small although a few people of a weekend always wish there were a few more couches or chairs.
The people who work in the store are great - very good at learning their customers but they give you all the space you need. Whenever I order a book, it's generally in within a day or two and they always call promptly. We need to support our local bookstores like Community.

Pros: Good Selection, Knowlegeable, Prompt orders

Community has been one of the good guys -- a small, non-chain bookstore -- in Park Slope for some time. With a good selection of literary books, a strong program of readings, and, of course, coffee, it's a vital part of the Park Slope experience. That said, it's incredibly cramped and overcrowded -- since the last thing they should do is cut down on stock, maybe they could expand?
