We will continue to be closed to in-store customers through April 30th to help the community stay safe during this time of pandemic (see details below)

 

More intimate than a big box store or even the library, The Book Bungalow in downtown St. George will help you disconnect, browse, and indulge your senses the old fashioned way--using quiet, a comfortable chair, and your imagination.

If you want speed and discounts, stick with Amazon. Remember, however, that a better experience is worth more. if you want to slow down, explore, and discover new worlds, The Book Bungalow is your perfect refuge. As you find a book, take a sip of your favorite beverage, turn the page, and settle into one of our comfy chairs, your body will sigh in relief, grateful for the respite.

 

COVID-19 UPDATE:

As part of the Southern Utah community, we want to do all we can to sustain ourselves while still truly serving our neighbors. That means, as of the Governor's announcement yesterday, we will keep our store closed to in-store shopping through at least April 11th and probably April 30th. We will open again as soon as possible depending on developments. In the meantime, while you may see lights on in the store, it will only be because we're busy dusting, doing inventory, accepting deliveries, and taking care of phone and website orders.

As noted previously, we have canceled all daytime and evening events the rest of March and into April, hoping to reschedule them later once things have become more normalized. We continue to keep a close eye on the Utah Government's Coronavirus site and this CDC site to stay abreast of developments so that we can adapt as needed.

WE ARE STILL SELLING BOOKS BOTH ONLINE HERE AND BY PHONE (435-619-8200).

In fact, you can find lists of Recommended Titles here.

IF YOU ARE LOCAL, WE WILL PROVIDE FREE DOORSTEP DELIVERY OR CURBSIDE PICKUP.

If you don't live in the St. George Metro Area (which includes Washington, Ivins, and Santa Clara) or you're gifting to someone outside the area, we will send your purchases by media mail.

For those thinking about gifting, please consider signing up to become a Bungalow Book Angel during this time when so many could use a good selection of books to read. Just click on the link under "Community" in the top menu. 

Let's all stay safe and healthy, and remember: Even if you have to be alone, a good book makes terrific company. So, stock up while you can!

A Haven From Your Worries

Readers and Writers Now Have a Place to Gather

You can come simply for the books, with new discoveries in almost every genre. You can come to meet as writers or to discuss your latest book club pick. You can participate in writing workshops, poetry readings, kids’ story time, TED Talk discussions, music nights, and author presentations and signings. You can even compare reviews of the latest bestsellers or simply talk books with the Bungalow staff.

A Town Isn’t a Town Without a Bookstore

That’s what Neil Gaiman wrote in American Gods: “What I say is, a town isn’t a town without a bookstore. It may call itself a town, but unless it’s got a bookstore, it knows it’s not foolin’ a soul.”

Believe it or not, The Book Bungalow is one of the first bookstores in all of Southern Utah offering new books and all the events associated with literary life. We have wonderful libraries in St. George and surrounding communities, but even libraries can only do so much. There is a used bookstore in town that provides a valuable service, but it offers no opportunities to gather, to pull readers and writers together.

The Book Bungalow wants to do just that--serve as a meeting ground for book lovers and artists, as well as musicians and actors. We want to instill a love of reading and literature in our youngest citizens and watch them grow up and bring their own children to our store. We want to forge strong bonds within our own community and draw in residents of Santa Clara, Ivins, Washington, and beyond. Indeed, we aim to be the literary soul of Southern Utah.
