Our mission is to serve readers and writers of all ages with a handpicked selection of great books, a schedule of engaging events, a variety of community services, and an inspiring, comfortable place in which all are welcome.
Do you appreciate being able to buy tickets at BookPeople for all sorts of cultural events? Did you know we do not charge for providing this service and actually lose a considerable amount of money on credit card processing fees and staff time? Please show your appreciation and help us continue providing this service by also buying a book when you're picking up your tickets. Thank you!
We are now accepting new subscriptions and renewals for the New York Times. Subscriptions can be for every day, 5 days/wk, 6 days/wk, one particular day, or a couple of days. (Tuesday contains the Science Times and Wednesday has the Food section!) Current subscriptions expire on Dec. 31st. Please visit the store for more information and remember the New York Times makes a great gift!
You know that you improve the entire community when you shop at BookPeople. Now, you can also benefit the specific organizations of your choice! Apply your bookstore purchases whenever you shop to one of the participating organization's customer accounts, and we will donate to them a percentage of our profit from that sale.
Shop for children's books using our wonderful children's catalog, full of our favorite recommendations and the favorites of our indie bookseller colleagues all over the country!
