The Book Store Is Open


The bookstore is open for business! We look forward to seeing all of you shopping in the bookstore.


We will be following all health and safety recomendations required by the Contra Costa Library, based upon guidance from the California Department of Public Health and County Risk Management and ask that you respect any posted guidelines in the the bookstore.


While we will strive to be open during the hours the library is open, our hours may be a little unpredictable because we are a volunteer run operation. We ask for your patience if you drop by and find us unexpectedly closed. You may call the bookstore (925) 977-3349 to make sure it will be open.
