WHAT'S UP WITH US RIGHT NOW?
Thanks for asking! As of Saturday, June 12th, hello hello books is now open to all shoppers every day, no appointment needed.
To protect the health of children under 12, the unvaccinated, and the immunocompromised, mask wearing is still required for all shoppers and for the bookseller on duty. Our space is small, but please continue to social distance as much as possible. Thank you for your consideration for all members of our community!
Our hours are shorter than in years past both because we have a smaller staff and because we want to leave some room for appointment shopping for anyone not comfortable coming in for general shopping hours. If this is you, contact us and we'll set you up!
We're so excited to welcome you back into the shop after 453 too-quiet days!
Lacy and Jacob and Kathleen are on hand processing orders as fast as they can for pickup or shipping. (If you're ordering strictly for shipping, consider supporting us through our Bookshop storefront! Here's how Bookshop helps indies like us.) We're also happy to offer a careful selection of books and merchandise on display inside Rock City Cafe, which you can buy at their walk-in counter between 7 a.m. - 2 p.m. every day of the week.
On this site, you can order used or new books in stock, and you can also order just about any new book in print whether it's in stock or not! Safe, distanced pickup of your orders is available; you can read about the how, when and where right here. Just wait for a notification that your order is ready to pick up, and we'll include a reminder about your pickup options.
You can email us any time at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also check in with us on the phone at 207-593-7780, text us at 207-494-4274, or see what we're up to on Instagram and Twitter.
Thank you for your patience, and your dedication to keeping our mission alive! We couldn't do this without you.
