Best Rio Grande Valley Bookstores
One of our favorite gifts to give (and receive) during the holiday season is an enjoyable book. No matter if it is a biography about Sam Houston, a volume that details the history of Texas, a series of Western novels, or Brownsville by Oscar Casares, we love them all! While you might be able to find most of these books online, we love supporting our local businesses here in the Rio Grande Valley, which is home to several bookstores! Here are two of our favorites:
The Storybook Garden
Location: 260 South Texas Boulevard, Suite 106, Weslaco
Phone: 956-968-READ (7323)
The best thing that you can do for a child is instill a love for books and reading at an early age. When you shop at The Storybook Garden, you will find books specially written for kids by beloved authors such as Dr. Seuss, Eric Carle, Laura Ingalls Wilder, L.M. Montgomery, and many others. In addition to selling books, The Storybook Garden sells children’s clothes, offers workshops, and hosts author meet & greets. For more information, please log onto the store’s website and Facebook page.
University of Texas-Rio Grande Valley Bookstore

Additionally, UT-RGV swag is available, including clothes (men, women, and kids), auto accessories, blankets (perfect for tailgating), drinkware, and more!
