And here is how we will keep you and our staff safe


**Masks must be worn by everyone in the store**


**Hand sanitizer will be required when you enter the store (available at our front table) This will allow you to safely browse**


**We ask that you not sit and read or socialize as this makes it more difficult for others to browse in that area and keep a 6-foot distance**


**When you checkout we will sanitize before and after touching your books and money to keep you and our staff safe**


We continue to have Curbside pickup Available

Orders placed online can be set to pick up in store/curbside or have shipped direct (Shipping Fees start at $2.99). Please use online payment options.

Place an order online, wait for an email or call letting you know the books are ready for pick up. When picking up please call 217-356-2555 and we will bring your books out to your car.

We Give Store Credit for Books!
Bring in books anytime during our store hours and we will process and issue you store credit. Current turn around time is 2 to 3 days. We will donate any books to local charities that are not needed in the store so please only bring books you don’t want returned to you.
