Happy 8th Birthday to Us!

Janus Books turned eight years old on July 7th. My mom made a cupcake and a flower vase out of old books. I’d like to thank everyone who has supported us over the years: we wouldn‘t be here without you!

We are looking forward to reopening as soon as we feel it is safe to do so. Our first priority is the safety of our customers, staff and community.

We continue to offer FREE local delivery and curbside pickup.

A Heartfelt Thank You!

We want to extend a deep and heartfelt “Thank You” to everyone who has placed an order, or otherwise offered their support.

I visited Janus Books for the first time today and was flooded with bookish happiness the moment I walked in the door.

I ordered online and received the books on my doorstep less than 12 hrs later. Great service and the books were in excellent condition. Thank you!
