New and Lightly Loved Books for the Whole Family



A Likely Story Bookstore, located in historic downtown Sykesville Maryland, is Carroll County's most exciting and only independent bookstore. It's eclectic mix of books includes hard covers, paperbacks, new and used books in all genres. There's Mystery, Romance, Memoir, Fiction, Non-Fiction, Religious, Science Fiction, Cooking, Classics, Young Adult, and a Wonderful Children's selection – You name it, we've probably got it - or can get it for you quickly!

In addition, A Likely Story carries a wide range of merchandise - Cards, Journals, Toys, Games, and Puzzles (That you won't find in Wal-Mart!), Novelty and Gift Items, and Seasonal Gifts. We are always looking for that unique item to put in the store. Gift certificates and gift subscriptions are also available. So much to see and enjoy!



Wow!  Fall is here already and we have been getting some great releases and new items in daily.  Come and check out our Clearance area in the store as well as our ever changing stock!  We have been busy in store and off site for events.  Hope you can make some of them this fall! 

Thanks for shopping Local -
