With love to all of our customers - An update
Dear Galaxy Bookshop community,

As of Wednesday, March 18, The Galaxy Bookshop will close its doors to the public, which we believe is in the best interest of the health of our community.

Please know that this does not mean we are closing! In fact, we are working on ways to better serve you, as we all try to navigate the ever-changing landscape of life during a pandemic.

  • For the time being, we will be taking orders via phone and email and will offer multiple avenues for customers to receive their purchases.

  • Andrea or Sandy plan to be at the store, Monday through Friday, between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m., in order to receive shipments of books and package orders to go out.

  • We are currently working to make online shopping an easy alternative to all of our customers! We will send out another update when this goes live.

Here are the best ways to reach us:
By phone, (802) 472-5533, Monday - Friday, 11-3.
By email,, seven days a week.

Let us be your personal shoppers!
Not sure what to read? Give us a call or send us an email with a few notes about the type of book you're looking for, and we will happily give you our recommendations!
Shop The Galaxy Bookshop Online
As we mentioned above, we are working on bringing you a full-service e-commerce website, to allow you to shop The Galaxy Bookshop from home. Until that is available, we still have several convenient ways for you to shop online AND locally:

Delivery Options
We are making media mail shipping free to our customers at this time. Most of the time, for orders within Vermont, media mail will only take a couple of days to reach you.

In the interest of convenience, we are offering other options for order delivery and pickup, as well. We can discuss these options with you when you place your order, and help you decide on the best option.

Connecting through Social Media
We plan to begin filming and sharing videos each week that will highlight new books and other items coming into the bookstore each week! We'll do what we can to make you feel like you are browsing the bookstore from home.

Look for these videos to be posted on Facebook and our website .

We will also continue to post about books and news through our Facebook page and on Instagram .
How can we serve you?
We are all in this together, and reaching out through phone, email, and social media are the best ways we can stay connected as a community right now. Please feel free to get in touch with us, anytime, to let us know what we can do to serve you as your bookstore. We're also happy to just chat about books!

Stay well, stay in touch, and keep on reading,

Your booksellers at The Galaxy Bookshop
