Dear Readers,

As La Plata County moves into Severe Risk Level Red for COVID-19 precautions, we'd just like to keep you informed regarding how we are responding and what you can expect.

  1. Shop hours will be 9 a.m. - 7 p.m. every day, beginning Friday, November 20th. (We will be closed on Thanksgiving Day.)
  2. We are keeping our doors open to create better air circulation within the shop and we are offering curbside pickup for customers who are not comfortable coming inside.
  3. We are only allowing 6 customers at a time in the shop for browsing.
  4. We require face masks for all customers 4 years of age and older. Masks must fully cover both the nose and mouth.
  5. We require all customers to use hand sanitizer or wear gloves (provided) for browsing.
  6. While we are able to invite you inside, we would also like to encourage you to browse our website: www.mariasbookshop.com and/or call us at 970-247-1438 for orders and inquiries.
  7. We will be offering a free, in-town delivery service starting on Monday, November 23rd (Details to come)
  8. We will also be installing a "Book-Mobile" in front of the shop, after Thanksgiving, for gift-wrapping and curb-side pick-up, to minimize in-store traffic.

Our staff are going above and beyond to keep Maria's as safe and pleasant as possible for our customers, and we greatly appreciate your continued support and understanding.

Feel free to check our website and our social media pages (facebook and Instagram) for updates to our COVID-19 protocols as we respond to the changing risk levels.
