Have The Bookstore to Yourself!

We have delayed reopening because we want to allow business to continue only in step with your safety. This is a trial period of appointment-only booking that we think will be effective in keeping our small business alive and your wellbeing in mind.

Appointment Hours: Monday - Friday, Noon - 5pm, & Saturday 10am - 5pm

We only accept appointments through online booking. (See Below)

We are opening for appointment-only browsing beginning Monday June 1st. Appointments last for 30 minutes, and we will admit no more than 5 people per appointment. Masks are mandatory for entrance (we have some free masks available on entry), and we have gloves available, but wearing them is optional.

"Let's Keep Our Minds Healthy with Reading!"

Dear loyal customers and friends,

Each of us are probably counting the stack of books on our nightstands making sure we have enough to get us through this pandemic. We are certainly here for you in these increasingly uncertain times. To try and make it easier for you to plump up your stack to your home or business if you choose not to come in the store. We will run books to your car in front of the store or deliver to your house if possible.

If there is one thing we can always count on it is the importance of books and literature in our lives no matter the state of the world. Union Ave Books and our booksellers are here for you. Please let us know if you need a book suggestion or want to order it for pick up or deliver or for pick up in the store. Or you may have an elderly or sick friend in need of a book that we can ship to.


We’re keeping our hands washed and counters clean.

Let’s keep our minds healthy with reading.


We are here for you.

Be safe.
