Since 1983, Crawford's Books has been offering new and used books to the Sacramento region. Jim and Joyce Crawford established the store as a general bookstore with an emphasis on mysteries, westerns, romance and military history. As the store flourished, Crawford's moved to larger store locations over the years, ending up at its current location at 5301 Freeport Boulevard in 2007. In 2017, Jim and Joyce decided to retire to spend their days reading and enjoying themselves.
Hollywood Park residents, Sue and Greg Richards took ownership of Crawford's Books in January, 2018. Sue and Greg were long-time customers of the store and are thrilled to keep the local, beloved store operating. Their plans are to expand the children's section and become the hub for local schoolchildren to obtain required reading books and books for pleasure at affordable prices for families.
Crawford's continues to offer a variety of book genres including: general fiction, romance, western, audiobooks, children's books, self-help, spirituality/religion, cookbooks, gardening, biographies, travel, sports, history, military history, art and classics. Mysteries include: American, British, international, cozies, pet and culinary cozies, and Amish. Come check out our large selection of quality books!
