Using our Website
Our webstore shows items that are in the store as well as items we can order for you . If we have the item in our store, it will say 'in store now ' in bright green.
All others items will need to be ordered and at this time it is taking around 2 weeks for items to come in.
We will be in touch with you when you place an order regarding payment, expected arrival and pickup.

Thank you for your business and your patience as we attempt to navigate this unprecedented time.

Dear friends,
In 30 years of business BookLore has only been closed for one day & that was for the great blackout of seventeen years ago.
The time has come to make the decision to keep our community, customers & staff safe. Our doors are now closed,
however, we are only a phone call or email away.

Our website,, is always open. You can check it out to see what we have in the store and what we can can order in for you.

Someone will always be in the store from 10 am to 3 pm Monday to Saturday to answer the phone, reply to emails, take payment over the phone and arrange curbside pickup or delivery.
Our phone number is 519-942-3830 and our email is

Independent bookstores are known for hand selling - taking the time to put the perfect book in your hands only this time we’ll put it on your car hood with curbside pickup or your mailbox with personal delivery.
Since we live in an urban-rural area just call us & we’ll figure it out.

We are here to bring you not only books, but puzzles, games, puppets and activity books that will bring you joy, entertain you and allow you moments of reflection.

Are we worried? - of course we are but we know that the “independent spirit” will carry us all forward.
Just know “we’ve got this”.

With gratitude and thanks for your support
- Nancy, Brenda, Tracey, Nancy O., Jan and Katie
(a.k.a. the BookLore gang)
