Solvang was founded by Danish immigrants in 1911. There is still a significant Danish population in the area and many visitors come from Denmark to visit the 'Danish Capital of California.'  The Book Loft carries a large selection of Scandinavian Books in English and foreign languages.  Whether it's Nordic Noir, the Hygge lifestyle, Viking history and mythology, or delicious recipes and cookbooks you are looking for, we're the place to find it.
