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, turn the page, and settle into one of our comfy chairs, your body will sigh in relief, grateful for the respite.
We're still requesting the use of masks while in the store (we'll be wearing them too, of course).
Daytime and evening events are still being held virtually, so if you're interested in taking part and aren't intimidated by the Zoom platform (you really needn't be--it's as easy as clicking on a link and entering the provided password to join in on an event), please contact us so we can keep you apprised as events are scheduled. We're hoping to resume normal, in-person events by the middle or late summer. If enough people get the vaccination and continue to mask up for now, that will be possible.
FOR THOSE STILL LEERY OF STOPPING BY, WE CONTINUE TO SELL 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 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.
