Plan Your Visit

Book Arts Open Hours:

NEW Winter hours start in February: Thursday 10am-2pm Friday 12-6pm, Saturday 10am-2pm

Ready to Visit? Here’s what you need to know:

Book Arts is open in careful compliance with all NYS Forward guidelines, and we need your help to ensure our space stays safe for all members of our community! 

  • Per NYS guidelines our capacity is limited to just 10 people (including staff) so spots can fill up quickly. If we are at capacity when you arrive we’ll ask you to kindly wait outside.
  • All guests will be required to wear a face mask that covers both your nose and mouth for the duration of your visit, in accordance with NYS mandates. If you forget your mask at home, we will provide you with a paper mask. Children under 2 are not required to wear a mask.
  • If you are unable to wear a mask due to a medical condition, please let us know in advance of your visit by emailing [email protected]
  • Hand sanitizer will be made available throughout our facility.
  • Guests are asked to observe all posted signs and distancing markers throughout our facility for the duration of your visit.
  • In addition to mask-wearing, careful sanitizing and social distancing, Book Arts is also utilizing two air purifiers for use throughout our facility.
  • Book Arts continues to host workhops both virtually and in-person. Workshops held in-person at Book Arts will be small (9 people or less) and socially distanced.
  • Finally, please be patient with our dedicated Book Arts Team Members as we all navigate this new normal. 

We may be making frequent changes to our operating hours and procedures, so be sure to subscribe to our email list, follow us on Facebook, Instagram & Twitter, or email us at [email protected] for the most up-to-date information. Thank you so much for your support!
