Due to these extraordinary circumstances, and absolute assurance for you and your loved ones’ wellbeing, Books on B’s physical storefront will be closed now until at least April 7th.

We’re going to do our best to be there for you in every other way in the meantime — shopping with us safely online is coming soon!

For now, be sure to sign up for our newsletter, and follow us on Facebook or Instagram, for updates.

I’ll be checking phone messages only occasionally during this time; a direct message by haywardbooksonb@gmail.com is best.

Sign up for Libro.fm/booksonb and booksonb.papertrell.com for your audio and digital book needs!

This independent bookstore was brought to life by book lovers like you; I’ve seen the caliber of your character, and am confident that together, we’ll get through this.

Thank you for your support: before, now, and soon again.

Take good care of yourself and each other,

                                                    Renee Rettig
                                                    Books on B


Books on B, created by its community, and for its community, opened its doors September 30th, 2017.

Its owner, Renee Rettig, hails from Hayward’s beloved The Book Shop (1960-2017) and is proud to be part of the preservation and proliferation of independent bookstores.

Celebrating new, used, and rare reads, and delighting in special orders, placed daily, Books on B invites all readers to gather at its warm, welcoming hearth— bring your curiosity and compassion!
