Please Read

We have been noting the most recent CDC and State of Ohio health regulations and reading everything we can about best practices in small spaces during this phase of the pandemic. At this time we are still requiring staff and patrons to wear masks while browsing in Mac's. We have limited capacity and believe that this is the best policy right now for our customers well-being, health and most importantly, peace of mind.

The latest Ohio guidance requires mask use in various settings, including "businesses that choose to require masks."  We will revisit our policy frequently and announce any changes here. 

We are open Monday-Saturday 11-7 pm & Sunday 12-6 pm for in-store browsing or curbside pick-up.

We share the spaces out front with Tommy's. Call when you arrive and we can bring your items out to you.

We are still committed to safe occupancy limits and distancing with mask being worn by children & adults.

Consequently, there is occasionally a brief wait time to come in the store.


Telephone orders: Call us with your requests and you can prepay and pick-up curbside or in-store or we can mail them to you. 216.321.2665

We can also mail books directly to your home.

Order online 24/7--Please read

When you order online you will receive a confirmation. We will send a separate email when your order is on the hold shelf. Wait for that email before you pick-up the order. :)

Tips for ordering:

1. Use the search bar to look for whatever you want to read. This site has a database of millions of titles.

2. Check the publication date. Many titles have a future release date. You are able to pre-pay now & we can process those orders at pub date.

3. Check the format and choose paperback or hardcover. Keep in mind that some titles are listed but not yet available in paperback.

4. If it says "special order" or "email store" that may mean the title is temporarily unavailable. 


Used Book Trades

We have resumed taking book trades but ask you to limit your trades to one box or one bag per visit.

We will consider your trades Tuesday-Saturday from 12-6 p.m. 

Because we will be "quarantining" the books for several days we will be very selective with what we are taking in right now.

Here is an overview of our trade policy and a guide to what we look for.

Thank you for being our customer and your continued support!  heart
