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!

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!

Want the latest recommendations for children's books? We're adding new reviews to our blog every week, along with insider book news. So check back regularly – and be sure to comment and post your own reviews! 


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. 
Running low on time? We take phone orders, and can have gifts wrapped and ready to go. Out-of-town relatives looking for suggestions? We offer gift registry services and can work with you to create a reader's wish list. We have gift certificates, too. Call us at 703-548-4092.
