Loganberry Books,
        1995loganberriesLoganberry Books was established in November 1994 by Harriett Logan. We are an independently owned and operated bookstore featuring carefully selected new, used and rare books.  Some of the strengths of our collection include children’s and illustrated books, women’s history and literature, leatherbound and modern first editions, and fine and performing arts.  Our browsable store contains well over 70,000 volumes for both readers and collectors. 

The shop is located on Larchmere Boulevard on the east side of Cleveland Ohio where many great antique shops and art galleries congregate (directions & map).

Originally sharing space with Dede Moore Oriental Rugs, Loganberry has undergone several growth spurts.  In 1997, we annexed the adjacent storefront, and in September 2003, we left the rugs behind and moved into our own building down the street, thereby tripling our space and available inventory.  See photos!

So, what’s with the name Loganberry? Well, it’s my old collegiate nickname. Since my mother and I are both involved with the business (she’s an excellent book scout), I thought the family name seemed appropriate.  It's also the source for what my brother refers to as "the corporate color": purple.

The website started early in terms of internet commerce.  We had our own website back in 1995, and since I didn't have much of a database to post, I started posting customer comments on a page titled I Remember That Book.  This quickly grew to include customer queries I couldn't answer, on a page called Stump the Bookseller.  The success of this service far exceeded my expectations, especially after publicity from National Public Radio and The New York Times.

Strong Bindery, a specialized service for restoring and repairing old books,  joined us at the new location in 2003.  Adjoining the two spaces is a clerestory garage that has been converted into the Annex Gallery, where a monthly rotation of local artists is featured.
