City Lights Bookstore is in Sylva, North Carolina, a small Main Street town tucked in the heart of the southern Appalachian Mountains. Our goal is to share the literature of the region with the world, and the world of books with our community.
Upcoming Events - Storytime, every Saturday at 11 a.m.
We have partnered with local service agencies who have offered anonymous lists of children in need this holiday season. You can help by providing that child with the gift of a good read. Come by the store and select an ornament from our Giving Tree and match-up a book for the age, gender and language listed. We will collect all the books and give them to the agencies in time for the children to receive books for Christmas. All Giving Tree purchases will receive a 20% discount. For more details please call City Lights Bookstore at 828-586-9499.
