The best thing about indie bookstores? We build community!

We're proud of all the ways our bookstore gives back to our community! If you're interested in collaborating or partnering with Midtown Reader, you're in the right place! 

In the past, we've partnered with the writing communities of Florida State University's nationally ranked Creative Writing Program, the nation's top HBCU, Florida A&M University, and one of the highest-ranked community colleges, Tallahassee Community College. We also partner with local literary, art, and historical organizations, such as the Tallahassee Writers Association, the Railroad Square Art District, The Holocaust Education Resource Council, the Tallahassee Historical Society, Young Actors Theatre, and several others. We love our city and strongly believe in shopping locally and creating the community that we want to be a part of.
