Website Updates and Other News 4/8/20

Hello! 

Our staff has been working on updating our website to make it easier to find the books you need. Today, there is a new "Kids and Young Adults" part of our main menu. We will be working over the next few days to expand this tab to bring you our staff recommendations for kids of all ages. 

This includes some exciting new pages, such as: 

Homeschooling Resources: We have a number of different supplementary resources available to help transition to learning from home. We have created new lists of these resources that we have at the store or that we can order. It's separated into two groups to make it easier to navigate between age groups: Preschool - 6th grade, and 7th - 12th grade. These lists are also avaliable if you hover over the tab under “Kids & YA”. 

Kids Indie Next List: We usually carry this list in the store, but now you can browse it from the comfort of your home. Find books reviewed and selected by booksellers from around the country. It's a great resource for finding new reading materials for your young reader at home. 

Staff Recommendations: We will be updating age appropriate pages to include materials our staff have picked as their favorites. This will range from 0-5, 6-11, 12-14, and 14+. We look forward to sharing our recommendations with you. 

We are still working hard to get your orders done in a safe and timely manner, but due to everything taking longer than it used to -- from our suppliers to shipping times to our own processes, please be patient and allow a few extra days. If you would like to request a book for delivery or mail, please email us at staff@countrybookshelf.com or order it through the website! At this time, this is the best and most reliable way to reach us. Our staff members will get back to you as soon as we can. Thank you! You are all the best and we appreciate all the support the community has given us during this time. 

Sincerely,

Country Bookshelf Staff

Time to Stay at Home -- Really! updates from the Bookshelf 3/27/20

 

Dear Bookshelf Family,

You are the best! Thank you for all the orders you’ve placed and the lovely notes and kind words you’ve shared with us this last week. You make us blush! We love being your go-to source for everything literary, and that’s not going to change. 

However, there are a few changes to how we will get books and other goodies to you in the next few weeks. Starting Saturday, March 28, our doors will be closed, but our website and email will be open. You can order books online and we will ship them to your house. Visit countrybookshelf.com or email staff@countrybookshelf.com. If you are interested in some of the non-book items -- cards, games, puzzles, kids activities -- that are not on the website, email us, and we will be your personal shoppers. We will not be answering the phones, but we will be happy to still make recommendations and give you all the service you love from our stellar booksellers. 

Saturday and Sunday, March 28 and 29, we are giving our booksellers a much needed rest, and then we will start filling orders again on Monday. Please do continue to place orders over the weekend, but our staff will not be monitoring email or social media these two days, so just be patient with us as we rest and regroup. We will get back to all of you and fill all orders as soon as possible. We are honored to be part of this amazing community. Be good to each other, and stay safe and well. 

Much love, 

Country Bookshelf Staff: Ariana, Anna, Kasey, Jessica, Harry, Kathy, Wendy, Kaycee, Maris, and Nora

Letter to Readers: Update March 24

 

Dear Bookshelf Friends,

 

We are so grateful for your support now and always. After careful consideration, we have closed the store to browsing. Currently, our desk remains open for pick up orders, but we’d really rather meet you on the curb, deliver to your home in Bozeman, or ship your order. We are offering $1 Media Mail shipping on books nationwide.

We are still answering the phones from 10am-6pm daily (although sometimes you may have to try more than once if our lines are busy), and you can order on our website 24 hours a day: countrybookshelf.com.

We are happy to be your personal shoppers, too, if you don’t quite know what you want or if you just want a lovely surprise. Call or email with your request and one of our amazing booksellers will take care of you. Please note that many of our gift, game, puzzle, and stationery items are not listed on our website, but a call or an email can make all of these accessible to you. We have great kid’s activities and puzzles for all ages to keep everyone entertained!

Please continue to safely support all of the wonderful local businesses that make Bozeman such an amazing community. We are here because of you. And together we can be strong.

Updated Hours & Thank You!

 

Dear Readers,

Starting tomorrow (Thursday, March 19th), we will shorten our hours to 10am-6pm daily. We’ve been rockin’ with the deliveries, curbside pickup and $1 Media Mail. Keep your orders coming! If at some point we must close, we will do our best to continue these services. 

Your support during this time really helps us keep operating, and we can’t tell you how important that is for the long haul. We’ve received so many kind messages of love and support which mean the world to us. Thank you! We are your community bookstore here to support you in any way we can. And we seriously love you and are so impressed in all the ways folks are helping each other. 

Keep checking our emails and social media for updates, entertainment, and links to great bookish content to keep you lit.

In Literary Solidarity,

Ariana and the Country Bookshelf Staff
