Hager Books was established in 1974 and is located in the west side Vancouver neighbourhood of Kerrisdale.
We carry a wide selection of fiction, memoir, biography, travel, psychology, history, cookbooks, and gardening. We also stock an excellent range of art and decorating books, from renaissance to 21st century, Michelangelo to Picasso, as well as recent architecture, cinema, and photography. Our children's section draws all age groups, with everything from Beatrix Potter and before to J. K. Rowling and beyond.
We select our books carefully with our customers in mind, but there isn't room on the shelves for everything. We have the latest releases, but if what you are looking for is not in stock, then we can pretty well order anything you want that's still in print and usually get it quickly.
You will find our staff knowledgeable, well-read, and willing to help you choose books for yourself or for your friends. For ideas, click the links on the lefthand of the page to browse our Enduring and Current Staff Favourites.
We also are happy to give your book club ideas about outstanding books to read and discuss.
