March at The Book Place
We’re celebrating Women’s History Month throughout the month with a $2.00 special. All books, whether it be a biography or memoir, History, women’s issues, True Adventure, women writers or artists, etc. (you get the picture) are just $2.00 each. Drop by and be inspired by some fabulous women! (Specially-priced books excluded.)
We’ve taken a cross-section of them and FILLED the front window, but you’ll find much more as you browse the shelves.
We take Requests - send us an email, we’ll look for the book to save time, or, if it’s a book we don’t have in stock, get on our waitlist, and we’ll let you know when it comes in.
We are always in need of gently-used materials to keep our selection fresh. We are in particular need of the non-Fiction categories: History, Biography, Military, Science, etc. However, we ask that you check the Donations Guidelines before packing your donation, as many categories have limits (such as, nothing published more than 5 years ago). We accept donations on Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday, 10am-3pm, at our large rollup door behind the store. Pull into the parking lot and look for us, where we’ll quickly screen your donation and provide a receipt if you like. If you are donating more than 2-3 bags/boxes, please phone ahead (415-209-0212) to check if we have room to take your donation, or if you have questions about anything you wish to donate. Thanks in advance!
