True Leaves Bookshop in Princeton is closed while it moves to a new home.

The bookstore that opened in October in downtown Princeton is moving into the main floor of the Sash Stalter Matson Building, formerly the Matson Public Library.

The owners plan to reopen in early June, with a grand reopening on Saturday, June 29.

In the meantime, books still can be bought online at, and special orders can be placed by emailing

True Leaves co-owner Angela Adams said the move will allow the business to expand its retail offerings and also host events such as open mics, poetry slams or book signings.

True Leaves will be a tenant of the Bureau County History Center, giving that organization a revenue stream. The history center also will provide the bookstore with gift shop products to sell.
