About Us

RobCarolineRobert Rando of Annandale and Caroline Scutt of Frenchtown became caretakers of the Garden in August of 2012. Robert and Caroline both have a passion for their community and met while serving on the board of trustees for Hunterdon County United Way. The two share many other interests including their love for literature.  One-thing-led-to-another which led to The Book Garden and a business partnership.

Community remains at the core of everything we do at The Book Garden – book clubs, author visits, writing workshops, fundraisers – whatever we do, we want to make sure you, our neighbors, our community are a part of our ongoing Celebration of Stories!

We hope you will join us!

Around The Shop

The Book Garden carries an eclectic mix of books in a variety of categories and features strong sections on local lore and history and works by homegrown authors.

If we don’t have it, we can get it – special orders are always welcome!

Browse through the constantly changing selection of Previously Loved Books in our cozy read-in kitchen where you will always find a few books or magazine looking for a new home. So come in, sit down, read a little or just … talk. The water is boiling and the coffee pot is on.

Our growing collection of Vintage & Rare Books is awe-inspiring for anyone who appreciates the artistry of printing and bookmaking – not to mention being able to connect with early editions of works by beloved authors.
