Curbside Pick-up
The Little Bookshop is still closed for in-store shopping but we continue to take orders by phone and email for curbside pickup. Thank you to everyone who has placed orders with us-- we really appreciate your support . We will continue to have  curbside pickup Wednesdays - Saturdays 12-3 until further notice . We hope everyone is staying safe and reading! We look forward to hearing about all your great book adventures.

Email is the best way to send your book questions, requests, place orders, and to reach out to us.  Once your order has been confirmed, we will call to get your credit card information.

I'm trying to get back to everyone within one to two days but if you don't hear back from me, please resend your email. Your orders and requests are important to us and I'm working hard to get books to all of you. We appreciate your patience as we deal with shipping delays from our distributors.

If you want to reach us by phone, our phone hours are 11-4pm Wed - Sat.
Order Online and Ship with
Yes, you heard right! There is a  new online ordering website  for books called Bookshop. It is an online bookstore where you can order books and have them shipped to you. Its mission is to financially support independent bookstores and give back to the book community. Every purchase you make on Bookshop supports independent, local bookstores like The Little Bookshop.  And when you purchase books on our Bookshop page, we get 30% of the proceeds during this Covid19 time period!  Here is a link to our page:

We have loaded some great book lists on our page, but you can order any book you want, not just the ones on our lists. When searching for books on Bookshop, use the search bar on our page. When you find the book you want, click on it and you can add it to your cart. It's fairly simple to use, just like most online retail sites. And of course, we can order books for you the traditional way too, but we are excited to have this new platform for online ordering and shipping to share with everyone.

Questions? Give us a call or send us an email.
