Samizdat Bookstore and Teahouse was established in Los Alamos, New Mexico in 2021 because, quite frankly, we were tired of living in a town without a bookstore. We like books and we like tea, and we think puzzles and board games and typewriters and fountain pens are fun. We are not particularly well-read; but our customers are, and every day they help make our selection better. 

We owe our existence not only to the wonderful people of Los Alamos, but also to the Los Alamos Commerce and Development Corporation, specifically its subsidiaries MainStreet and Chamber of Commerce, who sponsored a Retail Accelerator program designed to encourage new brick-and-mortar retail businesses. They took a chance on us, and thanks to their support we were able to partner with the Los Alamos STEAM Lab and move into 174 Central Park Square. We are next to Banken’s Martial Arts and across the parking lot from Rose Chocolatier.

We welcome you to stop by, browse an ever-changing selection of books, tinker with one of our wooden logic puzzles, play a new board game, type on our typewriter, or try your hand at writing a letter with a fountain pen and our beautiful inks. Let us make you a pot of tea while you linger and relax.

*A note on social media. We don’t have any.  While we understand this decision can be frustrating and off-putting, we made this choice for our own mental health. We certainly might change our minds in the future, but for now we prefer to communicate publicly through traditional local media outlets such as the Los Alamos Reporter and the Los Alamos Daily Post. We will do our best to keep this webpage properly updated, although it requires learning a thing called drupal and what even is that.

Best way to reach us is to call or text 505-412-0238, or email admin@samizdatbookstore.com.
