'Tis the good reader that makes the good book.

~Ralph Waldo Emerson

The store is open daily for one customer group at a time.  You can make an appointment in advance or stop by to check for availability.  We also have a new outdoor market on nice weather days for which appointments are not necessary.  We continue to provide contact-free curbside pickup, free local deliveries, and media rate shipping.  We will provide updates as we open further.  A few details follow:

  •  Email (barrowbookstore@gmail.com) or call us (978-369-6084) to book a half hour appointment;

  • When you visit, masks are required;

  • Before handling books outside or inside, use the hand sanitizer provided;

  • Do not use your own gloves (if you prefer gloves to hand sanitizer, we have some available);

We remain available to help you outside, over the phone or online if these requirements do not work for you or if you prefer to shop remotely.

We appreciate your patience as we start to navigate this new system. We will keep you posted as we continue to re-open.  

As always, we thank you all for being part of the Barrow Bookstore community.  We are continuing to think of you and wish you peace, continued good health and happy reading.

"I bring you with reverent hands the books of my numberless dreams." ~W.B. Yeats
