The Island Bookshop was born from the visions of Aimee Carol Odette and Michael Garnet Rank who recognized the need for a bookstore in Venice, Florida. To them, a bookstore is an extension of home, the anchor of a community. Both University professors, with a love for books and building community, their idea was a long-standing dream. The Island Bookshop became possible and is now open in the Merchants of Venice Shopping Center in the downtown historic district with enthusiastic support from the community.
We are sellers of new books and other reading related products including art, photography, and pottery from local residents. As a small community-oriented book shop, we provide literary and art experiences for our customers of all ages, children to adults. As residents of Venice Island, we are especially proud to showcase the work of various local writers and artists in the community, our home.
The Island Bookshop caters to the reading wants, needs, and desires of our customers. Writing and reading classes, writer’s groups, children’s groups, local author’s events, and community outreach define the Bookshop’s mission. With gratitude, Aimee and Michael look forward to fulfilling the literary needs of the community as well as a lifelong dream.
