The featured bookstore, Annie Bloom’s Books, opened in Multnomah Village in 1978 and is still thriving. Annie Bloom’s has been a major part of making Multnomah “the village in the heart of Portland [Oregon]”. They continue to be an anchor in the community, providing the space and the offerings to explore worlds and expand universes.
