MeJah Books has enjoyed the support, growth and success in the community since 1998 when it was founded in Claymont by Emlyn DeGannes and is co-operated by her family: Diane Barnes, Jewel Sanchez, and Jordan DeGannes.

We are indeed “a different kind of bookstore” because our customers are our biggest fans and we have dedicated ourselves to servicing each customer. The bookstore has become a gathering place, providing information, resources and the lively exchange of creative ideas. Although the company specializes in showcasing the contribution of authors from the African Diaspora and to promote racial pride; we offer a diverse inventory and have access to over 1 million titles.
