The faint scent of old paper comforts readers coming to The Hermitage Bookshop from far and wide. Lining the shelves are titles from a forgotten time lovingly preserved by the keepers of this book house. Nestled into the leather chairs or propped on a stool, readers are yet again taken on journeys through time and tradition at one of the oldest bookstores in the city. The store also seeks to keep alive the art of reading with read aloud sessions for students and children.
