Calliope and I here to give you a little update on the storefront! Due to the small size of the space and CDC guidance regarding limiting occupancy and social distancing, I’m not planning on opening the storefront anytime soon. It’s just not safe and not worth it to you or to me — especially because I’m chronically ill, so I have to be extra careful. I’m working on installing central air (filters and circulation are way better than stagnant air according to the CDC) and doing some other renovations so we can start offering private appointments.
These appointments will be booked online ahead of time and will allow you to browse the shop while wearing a cloth face covering and chat with your friendly bookseller (that’s me) from an appropriate distance. I don’t have a timeline on this just yet, but I’m hoping these appointments will be in place by the fall, and of course I’ll announce it here when they’re ready to be booked. In the meantime, we’re fully open online at spiralbookcase.com and available for sidewalk shopping on Saturdays from 12-2. I appreciate you all more than words can say for being so willing to shop online and continue supporting your little local bookshop! It truly means the world.
Of course, if you have any questions, comments or concerns, please just reach out to email@example.com!
