June Announcements!

It's June! After the washout known as Memorial Day, 2021, it's SUMMER! We can't believe that summer is here but our doors are wide open for in store shopping. We are so excited to see your masked faces. And,the Town of Belmont has set up these lovely tables up and down Leonard Street. So grab a drink from our talented baristas and a book from our shelves and sit at one of the tables! It's such a pleasant way to spend an afternoon. Our love of books and finding the right book, for the right mood, for the right reader never ends. (See our Staff Picks and new releases below.). And, if you are an audio book listener, you can still support Belmont Books with our audio partner, As always, we can ship to you or your favorite reader(s).

We so appreciate all the orders and support, and we are so grateful to you, our customers. Stay safe and healthy. Thank you!
