An independent, community-owned, cooperatively-run bookstore that serves as a literary hub and community space in the vibrant and diverse shore town of Asbury Park, New Jersey.
Asbury Book Cooperative (ABC) is an outgrowth of words!, which has been a staple of downtown Asbury Park since 2008. words! has become a center for local youth and community arts events including workshops, book clubs, readings, signings, parties, & story times for kids. We are excited to see this little-bookstore-that-could evolve into a cooperative, a place that is sustained by and for the Asbury community.
