Into 2021...

Having had a few days to reflect on recent months and to peek a bit into the future, we have made the difficult decision to take a pause and temporarily go back to curbside (bookstore bench) pick up for a while. We believe this post holiday pause makes a whole lot of sense...with the surges we saw in the spread of coronavirus this summer after holiday weekends and again after Thanksgiving, there is no reason to believe there won't be another big surge after Christmas that goes well into the New Year.

So, beginning Saturday, January 2nd, we will be closed for browsing, but in the store Tuesday - Saturday from noon to 5pm to get you all the books, cards, games, toys and puzzles you need. During those hours we will be available by phone to take your orders, recommend titles and to help you in anyway we can. You can also order by email and here on our website 24/7. We will offer limited in-store browsing by appointment.

Going back to this way of doing business is the last thing we want...what we all wish more than anything is to be able to move forward...but this is a temporary step we feel is necessary to take to protect the health and safety of everyone at this point in time. We hope to have you back in the store very soon!

We thank you dear customers for an incredibly busy holiday season!  WE APPRECIATE EACH AND EVERY ONE OF YOU!

All of us at ISLAND BOOKS wish you and yours a happy, healthy New Year!
