About Us

Novel Books opened on Memorial Day weekend of 2011, in  the historic district of Clarksburg, MD. We began in the original 1700's John Clark Trading Post, and moved across the street to the Gardner House in 2014, when the trading post was sold by the owner.

We sell new and used books, children's toys, gaming merchandise, and other book related merchandise. The Clarksburg community is mostly young families, and we have a two-level playroom for children to go along with story time. Children also enjoy the classes we host for music and science. The young adults gather for Friday Night gaming, mostly Magic: the Gathering card tournaments.

Novel Books is located in an area, which can still be regarded as rural, and borders an agricultural reserve. We use an RV to participate in multi-day off site events in other towns and shows. The owner is active in the comunity as a leader in the shop local movement. He has advocated for infrastructure and other town improvements through the local and state government.
