Independent bookstores play an important role in diversifying literature as an art form. Often becoming cornerstones within tight-knit communities, they provide a space where children can stimulate their imagination, expand their understanding of the world, and develop language and listening skills.


My name is Tamara Shiloh, and I own the Multicultural Bookstore in Richmond, California.


Prior to the start of the pandemic, we leased a super-large space in the Hilltop Mall. When they were forced to shut down, we had to move quickly. During that time, we were featured in O, The Oprah Magazine as a Black-owned bookstore to support.


Our bookstore is truly a gem. 

You need a bigger store!!
And you can help us make that happen!

We offer books with African American, Native American, Asian, South Asian, and Spanish lead characters; along with many genres including LGBTQ, Social Justice, Music/Dance/Art, Teen/Adult, Baby, Chapter Books, Black History, Diversity, STEM, Sports, Graphic Novels, Disability and other fun books.

I am seeking your help to expand the bookstore. We are looking to double our space to accommodate more books, educational games and puzzles. We also need space to conduct Story Time on Saturdays, host author book signings and other community events.

Our new bookstore will provide opportunities where the community can come together to celebrate the uniqueness and diversity that makes us who we are, and the literature that supports that ideal.
