A bookstore that has been a part of downtown's community since 1982, Malaprop's Bookstore/Cafe started as a small endeavor on the part of the owner, Emoke B'Racz, to further her love of books and literature. The love for literature is obvious from the name of the store itself, inspired by the character of Mrs. Malaprop from Richard Brinsley Sheridan's play The Rivals. Though the root word of the name, malapropism, refers to the improper use of words that sound similar, this bookstore has a staff that is dedicated to ensure you buy the proper book for yourself. There is also a cafe at the bookstore that serves locally roasted brews. See the website or call to know more.
