The Book Place will welcome you back into the store Saturday, June 13!
Our specials for September focus in on the creative side of things, as well as a popular genre.
Musicians, take note (pun intended!): Our wide selection of sheet music and music booklets are at 50% off. They range from classical and rock to inspirational. Need some new tunes?
The Crafts and Hobbies section is 50% off, and we’ll soon be bringing out our Holiday Craft books to give you a head start on things.
Science Fiction lovers - we’re extending our sale on Sci-Fi through September; 50% off all titles.
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!

Donating? Please phone ahead to check if we have room for your donations before bringing your books/materials to the Book Place. 415-209-0212. Our room gets full very quickly, and we often have to refuse donations temporarily. Please read our Donation Guidelines for further direction. Please, no dirty, torn, moldy books - please consider carefully whether your books are in resale condition.
