As an independent bookstore, we pride ourselves on knowing children's books and providing great customer service. If you can't find a book you want - ask us! We can order it for you.

Go Green at Hooray for Books! We're pleased to announce that we're collaborating with Eco-Libris so that customers can support the environment while reading books. You can elect to add $1 to the price of each book you buy - for each $1, Eco-Libris will plant one tree in a developing country. You'll receive an Eco-Libris sticker for each book for which you make a contribution! Read about Eco-Libris here.

We Have Autographed Books!
We're very lucky to have fantastic authors come into our store all year long and they always sign a few of their books for us! We have signed copies for all ages and they make excellent gifts!
Hooray for Gifts!
Want a gift that lasts all year? We'll select and send a book to those special someones in your life every month, wherever in the world they may be. Whether you live near us, and want to give books to those far away, or live away from us, and want to give books to someone here, we can help. Call or e-mail us for details -- this has proven to be a great way to keep in touch with loved ones!
If we happen to be sold out when you come to the store, or if there is a book that we don't have, don't worry: we can order any book in print (for children AND for adults) and we can usually have a copy to you in 2-3 days.
