Who We Are

The Bookstore is the gateway through which most discover Oxford Exchange.

– Ernest Hemingway

OE Programming

To further community engagement, we host an array of literary and cultural events, including monthly book clubs for children and adults, an annual book fair, and an annual holiday gift bazaar.

Inspired by London’s Gresham College — an institution providing free public lectures since 1597 — our mission is to foster the advancement of culture and knowledge. OE Programming events seek to entertain our sense of curiosity, inspire new areas of interest, and ultimately contribute to Tampa’s emergence as a cultural destination.
