This Month

Spooktober Announcements!

It's fall! And you know what that means? Dare we say it? Pumpkin Spice time and Spooky times abound!  But, even better? The glorious fall weather. Which makes it a perfect time to sit outside and read, with some pumpkin-y drink. Check out our staff picks. Lots of seasonal reads for every reader! If you're unsure which book to choose, our booksellers are ready with fabulous recommendations for a wide variety of reading tastes.

The "A Tree Grows in Belmont" fund we set up to celebrate our fifth anniversary in Belmont has been a great success. We raised enough money for two trees! Thanks to all who donated. Stay tuned to find out when and where they'll be planted.

Covid Update: The spread of Covid19 infections is still a concern, especially with the number of cases on the rise, so we continue to do everything possible to keep our store open and safe for shopping. Even though we no longer require masks in the store, we greatly appreciate it when you wear one. Our staff is always masked and uses only N95, KN95 or KN94 rated masks. (Click here for information on buying N95/KN95/KN94 masks if you are having trouble finding some.) We also run three HEPA filters 24 hours a day, and when the weather allows we open our doors as much as possible to increase ventilation.

Curbside pickup is still available for those who prefer not to come into the store. Quick and simple: Just place your order and when you're notified it's ready for pickup, dash in from our back parking lot, grab your bag from the boxes in the hallway, then dash back out. Or, if you prefer shipping, we offer free media mail shipping for orders of $100 or more.

Thanks again for bringing so much joy into our store and cafe!
