  • Art

  • Audiobooks on CD


Indulge your love of reading, your love for the libraries by shopping at The Book Place this month! 


The lifting of Shelter in Place means that we can welcome in customers on open days with a reduced capacity of 25%. That means limit the number of customers to 10 at a time, and invite you to consider other options below if you are more comfortable avoiding exposure:


  1. Our indoor shopping hours are Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays from 10am-3pm. We limit the number of shoppers to meet county guidelines. 

  2. Alternatively, if you wish to play it safe because of Covid concerns, we ALSO offer Shopping by Appointment.  Make an appointment to shop during closed hours. Bring a friend/child, and get the whole place to yourself! Send an email to and we’ll set you up. (sorry, no evening hours)

  3. 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.
