CoVid-19 Bookstore Update - 5/18/2020

Dear Friends,

In light of the changes that have come from the Governor regarding Covid-19 and Idaho’s phased opening plan, we have decided to begin our "shopping by appointment" at both Rediscovered Books locations in Boise and Caldwell on Saturday, May 23.  For now, Once and Future Books will remain closed to the public, but will continue to be open for phone and email purchases.

Appointments for shopping at Rediscovered Books will be 30 minutes long and be limited to a maximum of four family members per appointment. Registration for appointments is required online through Eventbrite and will open on Tuesday evening at 5 p.m. MST. We will not take reservations over the phone. 

For your health and safety and ours, we will be requiring customers to wear a mask and use hand sanitizer upon entering our store. The booksellers at our stores will also be wearing masks, using sanitizer, and practicing social distancing as we work as well as wiping down and sanitizing our surfaces between customers.

We have also added a new option for walk-up purchasing at both Rediscovered Books  locations. Although you cannot come into the store without an appointment, you can come to the table outside our front door, let us know what you are looking for, and, based on our current in-store inventory, we can take care of your purchase right there.  All purchases will be contactless and we will only be accepting credit or debit cards at this time. Home delivery, online orders, and contactless curbside pick up will continue in their current format.  

Based on the information available to us, we are confident that we can offer these services safely. As always, thank you for your help and support during this challenging time, and we are so glad that we can begin seeing you in our shops again.  We have missed you.


Laura and Bruce DeLaney
