Athena Books is named after Athena, the Greek goddess of wisdom, and is intended to be a source of inspiration and gathering place for members of the Greenwich community and beyond.  We carry a wide selection of adult and children's books, as well as thoughtfully curated gifts, and aim to include something for everyone. The storefront, located in the heart of Old Greenwich, Connecticut at 228 Sound Beach Ave., just recently opened in December 2021.  The interior was designed to be a welcoming, open and airy space that is well organized and categorized so that books are easy to find.  We have a friendly and knowledgeable staff who are always ready with a personal recommendation.
