RETURNING TO A NEW NORMAL

We are glad to be able to welcome you back into the store now that Contra Costa County is allowing retail stores to open to the public. We hope to return to our normal store hours soon, but for the time being, our hours are Monday - Saturday 10:00 - 4:00.

We recognize that some of our customers may not feel comfortable shopping in public, and we will continue to take on-line and phone orders as well as offer free delivery to Orinda, Lafayette, Moraga, and Rossmoor.

Welcome to Orinda Books

We are an independently-owned bookstore based in the beautiful town of Orinda, just 30 minutes (give or take a rush hour or two) from San Francisco. Visiting is easy! We are open seven days a week and have ample free parking right outside our doors.

We strive to provide a diverse and eclectic range of books and have a large inventory covering travel, fiction, history and biography, current affairs, art and poetry, nature lit and science. Our children's department is wonderful and inviting and a great place to flop down and read.

We love to keep it local too! Check out our locally-made chocolate, olive oil, ceramics and artwork. We support local authors and artists and can provide a great space for local groups to meet.

Last but not least, we love to read and love to recommend our favorites - so don't hesitate to ask!

Come and see us soon.
