Welcome to White Mountain Publications

White Mountain Publications is a small Northern Ontario press having published over 350 titles over the years, specializing in non-fiction and especially local histories. Our store at 50 Silver Street, Cobalt, Ontario offers our current titles and a large selection of gently pre-loved books for your reading pleasure.

Open Again

Cautious but not paranoid, we are open again. It's a small store, and in the past six (now going on seven!) years I can count on six fingers the times there were more than 5 people in the store at one time. Usually it's ones and twos, so there's space. We want you to be comfortable. We have always wiped down screens, debit terminals, counters, so this is not a new protocol. It just happens more often now. Any of the pre-loved books going into our shelves are cleaned before they find their new (temporary) home. The new books are coming straight from the printers. No one is coming here to eat off the floors, and it's not a hospital. But it's as safe as we can make it, for both of us.

Be well. Be safe. And again, thank you for your support.
