Supporting Our Community

As a locally-owned independent bookstore, we strive to be a valuable community resource. 

We are constantly searching for effective and meaningful ways to help schools, libraries, non-profits and grassroots organizations in our community. Whether we're creating an eye-catching display in the shop to raise awareness for a worthwhile cause, donating 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 have a question or idea, please contact

Agency Sales

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

When agencies order books through us, they can count on great service, fair pricing and communication with real people in their community.

We offer a 10-25% discount on all agency orders.  For price quotes, please call or contact

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. 

If you are interested in displaying your work at Maria's Bookshop, please contact


Maria's Bookshop is committed to serving our local community however we can. This includes generously supporting many of the great organizations that work tirelessly to make our community better.

If you have a donation request, please contact

Each year, Maria's Bookshop donates nearly $10,000 in goods and services to local organizations that have included the following: 

Off-Site Book Sales

It's not unusual to see the Maria's Bookshop banner hanging at great community events in our area. We are happy to talk with you about supplying books for off-site author talks, book fairs, expositions and film screenings.

If your group or organization is hosting an event, and you'd like to have books available for sale, please contact for more information.

Ticket Sales

Durango and the surrounding area are bustling with shows and events, and we're happy to be a resource for your organization's ticket sales.
