Hours, policies & procedures


We see the CDC’s new guidelines for fully vaccinated people as a good sign. Things are getting better, but we’re not there yet. Because we can’t and don’t want to ask who is fully vaccinated, we are still requiring masks for in-store shopping and browsing. Thank you for helping to keep everyone safe.

The store is open for browsing every day from 10am and 6pm. No appointment is necessary during these hours. Masks are required for everyone entering the store. We’ve found books are particularly difficult to sanitize. Since picking up the books is so important in finding your next read, we provide gloves and hand sanitizer at the door. Please either use the hand sanitizer or don a pair of gloves before entering.

Thank you for helping us keep the store safe for yourself, other shoppers and our staff.

Home delivery is still available for those living on the island of Key West and Stock Island. We deliver Monday through Friday.

Finally, the thing we’re missing most this season are author events and book signing. Luckily, through the power of the Internet, we’re still able to speak with amazing authors safely with virtual events. We’re teaming up with The Friends of the Key West Library and the Books & Books stores in Miami to bring you award winning authors to speak on their latest work.
