Frequently Asked Questions
Where are you located?
We are on the first floor of the Kids Market on beautiful Granville Island!
How does one get to Granville Island?
We are accessible by transit (#50, #4, #84), Aquabus, False Creek Ferries, by foot, and by car. Parking remains free throughout Granville Island until 11am. We recommend coming by transit or foot to avoid parking mayhem during the high season. Or arrive early!
What are some tips for enjoying your bookstore, Kids Market, and Granville Island in general?
We recommend packing light. Small strollers will give you most access. Use outdoor spaces to enjoy food and drinks. Most shops do not allow food or beverages inside, including ours. As a pedestrian please be careful of cars and other vehicles. As a driver, please slow down and watch for spontaneous crossers. Demarcation between pedestrian and vehicle use on the streets is not often clear.
Do you deliver or offer shipping?
Yes! We offer local delivery to the GVRD with a minimum purchase of $100 as well as safe and insured shipping worldwide. You can select pick-up, delivery, or shipping at checkout on our online shop.
Do you have gift cards or gift certificates for your shop?
Yes! You can purchase gift cards through our Support Local BC page and use the purchase order number right away as a coupon code at checkout, which will take your gift card value off from your order total. We also have paper gift certificates available if you would like something physical to gift your loved one. We can even mail it for you with a handwritten note! Please give us a call.
What are your covid procedures?
We are continuing to follow public health orders. Some of our staff are choosing to continue to wear masks and some are slowly choosing to go mask free. We continue to sanitize and frequently clean high touch surfaces. We have a barrier at our cash desk, and sanitizers placed throughout our shop. We're excited to see you again - our dear book friends! Everyone is welcome!
