Dear Interabang friends and readers,

Today, heeding the calls of public health officials at national, state, and local levels, we announce the decision to curtail in-store shopping at Interabang Books from Friday forward, for an indefinite number of weeks. This change is a crucial step in being a good global citizen, but as our supporters surely realize, it is not a change we take lightly. Fortunately, a great deal is not changing: 

  • You can order online 24/7 at www.interabangbooks.com or call 214-484-4289 to place a phone order during business hours, as always. Your books can be mailed anywhere in the USA free of charge (select Economy Shipping at check-out). 
  • You can also request curbside pickup of your book orders, a new service: When your orders come in, we will call you confirming their arrival and payment, then arrange to meet your car as you drive up to the bookstore. 
  • Going forward, you can shop within the store by appointment, and also through our concierge service: Our booksellers are ready to make recommendations or choices to help find reading (or find gifts) for those staying close to home. Email info@interabangbooks.com or call 214-484-4289 so we can assist you. We look forward to it! We will still be on hand at the store.

As you know, in order to protect everyone’s health during the pandemic, Interabang has already been rescheduling author appearances and other gatherings set for the weeks ahead. Last week we implemented protocols to sanitize surfaces as well as to observe “social distancing.” Expert guidance has become more far-reaching, however. To safeguard our community and our customers, we must modify the bookstore’s daily operations.

You will see these changes (including curtailed in-store shopping) beginning on Friday, March 20, although all the services described above are available to you now, without delay. If you wish to come by Wednesday or Thursday and select some books, puzzles, games, or gifts in person as you have customarily done, we welcome you. We would love to see you. We look forward to providing you with reading, comfort, and pleasant diversion as we see each other through an event without precedent in our lifetime.

Your friends at Interabang Books

P.S. If you enjoy listening to books, we urge you to explore Libro.fm, a wonderful service that supports locally owned, independent bookstores like Interabang with every audio download. It’s another way to help, and much appreciated!
