Virtual Browsing!

NB new roomWe get it - you miss browsing. And we miss you! But even as we gradually open (see details below), some of you may be more comfortable browsing from home.

So we created a new Virtual Browsing page here on our website that includes twenty books you would discover if you were here in person highlighting new and notable fiction and non-fiction; hardcover and paperback. 

There is also a new 2021 Calendar page and be sure to visit the Staff Picks.

Special Note

We are open for browsing - by appointment only. We have cleaned and rearranged the store and have set up an online calendar for scheduling.

upstairs sept 20We will begin with four appointments at a time, one person per reservation. There is no time limit to a visit! Currently we are making appointments Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays, 10 - 4 and Saturdays, 10 - 2. We are not yet set up for visitors younger than 10. 

Masks are required and hand sanitizer will be provided throughout the store. We will continue our regimen of wiping surfaces regularly. We are not handling cash at this time so, if you wish to purchase anything, please come prepared with a credit card or check. (It is important that you follow VT and NH travel guidelines and stay home if you feel unwell.)

If you are interested, please go to this CALENDAR LINK and choose a date and time. Those of you without access to the internet may call the store and we'll schedule a time.

And we truly understand if you don't feel comfortable yet visiting in person... Ordering by phone, email, and via our website for pick up from the porch is still encouraged!

We will be in the store processing orders for pick up and shipping Tuesday through Friday, 9 am - 5 pm, Saturday 9 am - 2 pm. (Closed on Sunday and Monday.) Please call 802-649-1114 (leave a message if necessary - we may be on the other line) or email info@norwichbookstore.comTo pay for your order you may call with credit card information or use this secure website.

To receive your purchase, call or email  to make arrangements for pick up from our porch. Book shipments over $20 are mailed at no cost. (Note: non-book items do not qualify.) Free delivery to the main entrance at Kendal will be coordinated with Dan & Whits.

Because of the pandemic's effect across all aspects of our business, it takes longer to receive, process, and ship books than it used to. If you have a "cancel by" date, please let us know when you place your order.
