More information to help plan your visit:

The Spiral Bookcase is located at 4257 Main Street, Philadelphia, PA 19127. Our location is in the heart of the beautiful neighborhood of Manayunk, which features a lively commercial corridor with other charming shops, restaurants, bars and a lovely walk along the canal. 

Our shop can be entered via the white double doors; turn left immediately after entering and walk through the glass door. You’ve found us! 

We are accessible via the SEPTA Regional Rail Manayunk/Norristown line. Street and lot parking is available just steps from our shop; the Parkway Parking Lot at Cotton Street is the closest lot, though nearly all are within walking distance. 

If you’d like to explore the neighborhood, we recommend: Safa Teahouse & Plant Shop, Volo Coffeehouse, Lucky’s Last Chance, New Leaf and Yanako. If you enjoy Thai food and want to dine in beautiful surroundings, Chabaa Thai Bistro is a must!

For accessibility, please note Manayunk is a very hilly, often busy neighborhood. Our storefront is unfortunately not the most accessible — entry requires two steps up, entrance through a small set of doors, and then through another door. Our shop is charming but small, and may be difficult to navigate for wheelchair users or those with mobility issues. As a disabled, chronically ill person myself, I hope one day we can find a permanent home for Spiral that is more accessible to all!
