Store Policies


Gift Certificates: We can reproduce your lost gift certificate as long as you know the date of purchase and who it is to/from.

Coupons and Store Credits: Once a coupon/store credit prints out there is no record of it and we are not able to reproduce them. We can keep your coupon/store credit for you in the store but it is your responsibility to remember that they are here. If you choose to keep it, it becomes your responsibility. Coupons are valid for one year from date of issue.

COVID Policies:

Dear friends and customers,

On Wednesday, August 18th, the Nevada County Public Health Officer, Dr. Scott Kellerman issued an order regarding masking in Nevada County. This mandate requires all individuals, regardless of vaccination status, to wear face coverings when indoors in public settings/businesses and it will go into effect on Friday, August 20th.

Here is what this means:

Masks are mandatory while in our shop. If you forgot yours at home - don't worry! We will have spares on-hand for you.

If you are unable to wear a mask due to a medical condition, we will be happy to help you outside, over the phone, or through our website and you can either pick up your books using our curb-side pick-up, or we can ship them to you!

All sales are final. We will not accept any returns. However, if you are looking for a great gift, our gift certificates are available both in store and online and they never expire!

If you're able to apply hand sanitizer, great! We will have it throughout the shop. If not, we ask any handled books to be set aside for cleaning.

We will still be limiting the number of people allowed in the store. We will be locking our door when we have reached capacity and allowing new customers in as people leave.

With all of this being said, we are so grateful for the support you have shown us over the past year! You have helped keep this independent bookstore alive and following this mandate will allow us to stay open while keeping our customers and staff safe.

Thank you for your patience and kindness during these trying times.
