If you have ever been to Indigo Bridge Books once, you have probably been back. Maybe it is a bit the setting – in an older “classic” Lincoln building, full of warmth and charm.
Or maybe you go back for “The Cafe.” Their gourmet coffee. Their featured food items from local bakeries. A quiet place to study and reflect or enjoy conversation. And maybe Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays find you eating lunch at “The Table”, lunch that involves soup and bread and, more importantly, community and conversation.
Or maybe you go back for your kids. Because they want to play at the train table. Or sit in the rocking chair. Or browse around at books perfectly placed at their level. Or they want to check out the games section. Or the child-sized musical instruments. Accordion anyone? (Just know that once you are there, it is hard to get the kids to want to leave!)

Maybe beyond playing, you want your kids to have a learning experience. So you attend IndiZOO events – a unique experience that involves a special story time that features an animal story, craft and a live animal that comes to visit from the zoo! (From personal experience, IndiZOO is a FUN morning!) Or you want to attend one of three story times that feature books and crafts. The Saturday morning one is even bilingual.
Or maybe you simply like the idea of a local bookstore that features a wide selection of books. And numerous possibilities for growth and learning. While they may not stock every published book, they will gladly order what you are missing. They even have a book exchange. A lovely place to settle in for an afternoon of coziness.
Whatever your reason, once you have visited Indigo Bridge Books, you will be back. Check them out at their location in the Creamery Building (701 P St. in the Lincoln Haymarket). Or visit them on Facebook to learn more.
