Dear Arcadia friends,


On May 20th we celebrated the 9th anniversary of our opening and, fittingly, it was the first day of our re-opening. We had some of the same opening day jitters and excitement that we did in 2011. While we now have a better handle on how the bookselling process works than we did nine years ago (what were we thinking opening at the start of the busiest season?), there are new unknowns. We appreciate your patience as we figure things out. To protect our customers and employees, here is our plan:

  • We will be open from 12 - 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, 10 -5 Saturdays and 12 -4 p.m. on Sundays.

  • Monday - Friday, 10 a.m. - noon, is reserved for shoppers who are over 60, immune-compromised, or pregnant. 

  • We’ve been adding safety measures for you such as a plexiglass screen at the counter, additional hourly and daily cleaning practices, widening of aisles to allow social distancing, and clear signage. We may be wearing masks and gloves but know that we’re smiling at you from beneath those masks.

  • Everyone entering the store will be required to wear a mask and visit the hand sanitizing station.

  • A maximum of 5 customers will be allowed in the store at one time. We ask that you follow social distancing guidelines inside the store and don’t enter if you are ill.

  • We will continue to offer curbside pick up, shipping, local front porch deliveries and shopping by appointment outside of our regular hours. Let us know how you are most comfortable shopping and we’ll try to make any accommodations.

  • The Paper Crane coffeehouse is serving drinks, cooler and bakery items. All food and beverages must be enjoyed outside of the store. Curbside/sidewalk delivery is available. 


We thank you for your support over the past few months and your words of encouragement. We also thank you for making these nine years fly by. It’s been an honor, and fun beyond measure, to get to meet you all and become friends through our mutual love of stories. How people from all over the world found us in this tiny village boggles the mind.  We are grateful for our book loving community and plan to be your bookstore for many years to come. We will look forward to seeing you in the store or seeing your name pop up in an online order or a Facebook comment. Until then, be well and read on!


Your humble Arcadians
