In-Store Shopping Guidelines Banner

BookPeople is open to the public from 9am - 9pm daily. 

The pandemic is not over yet so listed below are the required guidelines while shopping at BookPeople, and what BookPeople is committing to do to ensure the highest level of safety in the bookstore. These guidelines are adjusted to the Austin Public Health Risk-Based Guideline recommendations, and can change at any time. 

Guidelines for Guests:

  • In following CDC recommendations, customers that are fully vaccinated are not required to wear a mask in the bookstore. All customers not fully vaccinated must continue to wear a mask. 
  • Please physically distance yourself from other readers in line, at our information desk, and in the stacks. 
  • While we will not be gift-wrapping, we are happy to provide you with gift wrap paper. Just ask your cashier!
  • Hand sanitizer will be available at our entrance and throughout the store. Please use hand sanitizer before browsing books and gifts. 

By entering the store, guests warrant that they have no symptoms that could be attributed to COVID-19.

How We are Keeping Everyone Safe at BookPeople:

  • Hand sanitizer is available when guests enter, check out, around the bookstore and exit.
  • Hand sanitizer at all employee workstations.
  • Countertop protective shields are in place at checkout and information desks.
  • Signage all around the bookstore reminding everyone to maintain social distance.
  • For those who prefer contactless book buying, we will continue curbside pickup (if requested) and mail-out services!

We sincerely appreciate your continued support!
