Ideally, a bookstore isn't just a place you go to in search of the latest bestseller--it's a resource for the community.

We are constantly searching for effective, meaningful ways to help schools, libraries, non-profits and grassroots organizations in our community thrive, whether it's by creating an eye-catching display in the shop to raise awareness for a worthwhile cause, donating a basket for a silent auction, serving as an outlet for ticket sales, hosting a blood drive, or, of course, providing necessary books. No request is too offbeat.  If you've got a question or idea about how Maria's Bookshop can lend a hand to your work, please contact

We're proud of our work supporting local schools, libraries and non-profit organizations through agency sales.

Display Space

We're all about supporting our local community--including local artists.  Our wall space and front windows often are filled with the beautiful, thought-provoking, creative work of talented local artists.

Ticket Sales

Durango and the surrounding area are bustling with shows and events, and we're happy to be a resource for a wide variety of groups looking for a great downtown site for ticket sales.
