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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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 email@example.com.
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.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
