We have a very simple mission: Build an independent full-service bookstore in downtown Billings and turn it into a literary & cultural hub for the city.
This House of Books is an independent community-owned full-service bookstore and tea room in downtown Billings, Montana. Using the cooperative model means that we give book lovers a chance to own a piece of the store and participate in its success.
Our book selection is broad, with a focus on local & Western books, science & nature, and children's books. With dozens of published authors as member-owners, we have an excellent cross-section of books by local authors.
Our tea bar includes close to 200 teas and herbs imported from around the world. Many of our tea blends are made right on-premises.
The store also features tabletop games, ranging from classics like Monopoly and Yahtzee to modern hits like Settlers of Catan and Pandemic.
