Our Store


Orinda Books, located in Village Square since 1976, is proud to be Contra Costa County’s largest independent bookstore.

Come in and relax. There’s plenty of comfortable seating inside. We have over 16,000 books on our shelves, but if we don't have the one you are looking for we can (in most cases) have it ready to pick up the very next day. We also 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 ceramics exhibitions featuring work by Orinda artist Gerry Wallace have become sell-out hits. Gerry has a permanent display at the store which she replenishes weekly. We also feature paintings for sale by local artists on our dedicated gallery wall. 

We look forward to seeing you soon!
