High Five Books & Art Always


COVID-19 Update

Pssst! Here's what we're up to right now when we're not filling your generous orders or teaching your awesome kids on Zoom: Planning the new store + classroom! We have two weeks left in our sweet 29 N. Maple Street shop, then will be taking a week to move Florence locations (July 25-August 2). Then, back to curbside and delivery business—at 141 N. Main Street!


Opening Fall 2019, High Five Books is an independent kids’ community bookstore in downtown Florence, Massachusetts, right off the bike path. We’re your neighborhood go-to for graphic novels, middle-grade readers, and picture books, plus art kits + other creative supplies.

We share our welcoming space with Art Always, an art school for children and adults, in business for the past 18 years. (Go Lindsay!)

We offer story times, book and art events, author and illustrator experiences, and other family-based community programs around literacy and creativity. Also: Snacks! And, of course, high fives anytime.
