  • Wow wow wow. Really for folks who love books, arts, children's literature, rare items, history books - live music, book talks - oh and a coffee bar that makes an iced coffee like a martini and smells ...  more »
  • Wide array of new and used books. Building itself is interesting with lots of seating. We visited on a weekday morning so very few people there. Was hoping for more textile and fiber related books but...  more »
  • if you want a book, you should be able to find it. cute cafe, but no Gluten free options. several lectures were going on. could use more seating.  more »

  • The Midtown Scholar represents the bookstores and libraries we grew up seeing in movies, where it looks like you can find secret doors to escape to places within the book you are reading, or that you might literally be transported into an adventure like Narnia or The Neverending Story. The people working there and the people visiting are hard to tell apart because everyone feels like a neighbor you grew up with. The snacks and drinks are just right for visiting or for holding a meeting or other event, and there are always special happenings taking place. You certainly cannot be disappointed by the huge supply and diversity of literature available on just about anything, and you might just find yourself coming to sit and relax even without a book, just for the people and atmosphere. This is definitely one to check out for anyone who would like to fall in love with a bookstore again!
  • Such a great place to go if you're looking to browse a bookstore, grab a cup of coffee, sit down and do work, or all three! There is a lot of character in this old building. The employees are all very nice as well. Great place!
  • This is a great place to come visit. Whether you want to buy books, just sit and read for a while, get some work done on a laptop or something. You can even have books ordered in for you and there is a great selection for all. Give it a shot
  • So cozy and the staff is amazing. They have great coffee and they have live music. They crowd there is great and the even have some classes. There isn't alot of parking but I go every weekend and plan on going back.
  • This may be the most gorgeous bookstore I've ever been to. Clean, cozy, well lit with plenty of good reading chairs. A must-see if you're in Harrisburg.
