Dear Friends,


We hope everyone is safe and healthy!


We will be closed for the May 24 long weekend from Saturday, May 22 - Monday, May 24.

Open again Tuesday, May 25 at 10 a.m.


As yet we do not have any plans to open up the shop for browsing. The easiest way to stay up-to-date is to sign up for our newsletter. You can do so via the form at the bottom of this page. Our newsletter goes out every second week, and includes staff recommendations as well as information on upcoming events.


We continue to work short days so as to avoid travelling during rush hour. We're at the store between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. during the week and answering the phone at that time. Otherwise, we're available through email.


For Pick Ups

Customers are asked to pay in advance whenever possible, either through e-transfers or credit cards over the phone. Scheduling a pick up is not necessary. You can come by anytime between 10 and 3 and we'll pass your book out to you.


For Deliveries 

Deliveries will be continuing as usual. For the most part Ontario-wide deliveries can be expected in two days via Canpar. Within the city, most deliveries can be expected either same day or next day. For the rest of Canada it takes a little longer.


Please be safe! Staying at home curled up with a good book is exactly what the doctor orders these days!
