Welcome to Orinda Books!

Orinda Books has been in Village Square since 1977, and proud to be Contra Costa County’s largest independent bookstore. Visiting is easy! We are open seven days a week and have ample free parking right outside our doors.

Come in and relax. There’s plenty of comfortable seating inside. Browse our 10,000+ titles and don’t hesitate to ask our well-read staff to help with recommendations for all ages and tastes. If we don’t have a book on our shelves, we can order it and usually have it ready for pick up at the store within a couple of days. For your convenience, we offer free gift wrapping.

Our author readings and book signings attract people from all over the Bay Area, and we are particularly proud to offer shelf space and reading events to local authors. Our twice annual ceramics and painting exhibitions featuring work by Orinda and Moraga artists Gerry Wallace and Paul Kratter have become sell-out hits. We, also, feature a local artist's work each month.

We look forward to seeing you soon!
