Louisville, KY / carmichaelsbookstore.com

We're Louisville's oldest indie bookstore. We opened on Bardstown Road in 1978 and Frankfort Avenue in 1999. Carmichael's is a family business in the best tradition. As the business grew, so did the number of family members involved, and the staff now includes a second generation. Visit us often for cool stuff about books, writers and upcoming events.
