COVID-19 Update

To Our Customers:

Oblong will close our doors to the public beginning at 4:00 pm on March 16.

We will continue to work remotely fulfilling your online orders, recommending books online, and brainstorming creative ways to stay in touch and safely have our community access the books and book knowledge of Oblong and its staff.

This was not an easy decision. But we feel it is the most responsible decision for the health and safety of our staff and community at this time. We pride ourselves on being a gathering place for readers and we are still here for you! We feel we must do our part to “flatten the curve” while fulfilling our mission to provide books to our customers, in a safe and responsible manner, and to support the community in any ways that we can.

Shop our shelves from home at Free shipping is available via USPS Media Mail or choose curbside pickup at either store location.

Gift certificates are a great way to support us during this difficult time.

Look for more announcements and recommendations to come, via our social media channels, email newsletter, and here on the web.
