Our response to COVID-19
Please rest assured we are closely following the government’s advice and making decisions in the best interest of public health. In response to the current situation, we have launched a few new initiatives to enable you to safely and comfortably purchase books from The Book Bird. Keep reading to find out more, but, before you do, we’d like to say a heartfelt ‘thank you’. We’ve never been tested like this before, but we’ve also never been loved like this before. When we’re told to keep our distance, it’s amazing to see the ways a community comes together. Thank you for thinking of us during such a stressful time. Thank you for showing up, being present, and keeping us airborne. We hope, in some small way, that we do the same for you.
Our drive-by bookshop
Our shop is now drive-thru! If you’re walking the pooch or dashing to the supermarket, stop by The Book Bird for a take-away book or two. While we can’t allow browsing at this time, we can still recommend you books from our take-out window, which, we must say, looks very cute. We also have cards and stationery and other treasures quickly and easily accessible. It almost goes without saying that we have hand-sanitiser at the counter.
