During this national health crisis, Bookshop Santa Cruz will be closed to the public but will remain open with curbside pickup (10am-6pm daily) and online ordering 24/7. (Details here.) Bookshop is usually open 363 days of the year and has only closed once before, due to the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake. However, the safety of our staff, customers, and community comes first. As our customers self-isolate, we know you will need books, puzzles, games, and kids’ educational toys and workbooks now more than ever. That is why we hope you will continue to support us with ordering online including $.99 shipping to any zip code in Santa Cruz County or curbside pickup with online ordering or by calling us at 831-423-0900.
As we move into this new model with the community by our side, I think of an Irish quote that adorns a bench we dedicated to my parents on West Cliff Drive: "Keep your face always towards the sunshine and the shadows will fall behind you." The community's support is our sunshine and is what is sustaining us at this time.
Please take care, stay safe, and stay in touch.
