SAL’s Guide to Bookstore Re-Openings

Although many wonderful Seattle-area bookstores have online offerings and curbside pick-ups during this time, there’s something about roaming the shelves that we just miss. If you’ve been wondering which independent bookstores are re-opening near you, look no further than this guide to our 2020/21 bookstore partners’ new hours and offerings, updated as of July 9, 2020.

Please remember to bring your mask and practice social distancing!
