Explore Booksellers, a favorite destination for visitors and locals alike, has been an institution in the Aspen community for nearly 50 years. More than a bookstore, Explore is an intellectual gathering place that embodies the Aspen spirit - where books, ideas and the free-flowing conversation they initiate are part of the environment.
Explore Booksellers is owned by a non-profit organization, the Center for Public Interest Research, and part of our mission is to serve the Aspen community by hosting free literary events with local and visiting authors, educational events and workshops with a variety of speakers, round table discussions, and other programming with thought-leaders of the day.
When you make a tax-deductible donation to Explore, you will support and help expand our work to serve the Aspen community. You also will help keep Explore afloat in these challenging times for all of Aspen’s small businesses.
If you contribute $50 or more, you'll be enrolled in our Explore More membership program that will include benefits such as member discounts, access to member-only content and more. More details coming soon!
We hope you'll consider supporting us! You can donate via credit card below, mail a check to Explore Booksellers, 221 E. Main Street, Aspen, CO 81611 attn. Jeff Bernstein, or stop by and join in person.
