The Book Place will welcome you back into the store Saturday, June 13!

July already!  Time for relaxation, made better with good reading, music and movies for at-leisure activities. Our specials are designed for taking it easy; our  wall beckons with books at just $2.00/book (1/3 to 1/2 off).

If it’s tunes or movies you want, we’re off the charts with DVDs and CDs featured at just 2 for $1.00! Hurry in for best selection.

And for you political junkies, our Politics section is 1/2 off regular price.

*Fiction sale excludes: Current Releases, Sci-Fi, Romance, Westerns, Literature, Mysteries, and Children's books. (It’s JUST the Fiction Wall.)

Closed July 4th! Enjoy the holiday with friends and family.

You may visit us indoors or at curbside, whichever is more comfortable for you. We’ll still take book requests via our email,, or via a phone message, 415-209-0212 (speak slowly, clearly, and have both title and author). We'll let you know if we have the book(s), and the total charges. We'd prefer a personal check, otherwise cash.


We’re also accepting book/material donations at our sorting room in the back parking lot (enter off 7th Street). Stay in your car, and volunteers will take a look at your donations before accepting. We strongly encourage you to review our donation guidelines before packing up and coming over. Space is limited. A phone call beforehand to check on available space would be ideal; we know you've been holding these things for awhile and we hate to disappoint!


We've taken all precautions to make your experience safe and enjoyable. You must wear a mask to enter, and we’ll keep everything safe with continual cleaning and disinfecting.

Come by to see us!
