Open for Browsing!
We are THRILLED to announce that the inside of Green Bean Books is now OPEN for browsing!
We will continue to be cautious and have several rules for everyone to follow so that we can keep all those in our community of readers safe including those most vulnerable to infection and, of course, children. We ask everyone to wear masks on our deck and in our store whether vaccinated or not so that we can all be positive role models for kids making sure they do not feel isolated or singled out since they are in the remaining age group that is still unvaccinated. Their well-being and mental health is very important to us and we'd like to protect them and show them that wearing masks is easy and something we can all do for the common good of our community.
Our rules are as follows:
*Masks required of all people age 2 and up.
*Hand sanitizer must be used when entering.
*Respectful social distance between individuals must be followed.
*Six people will be allowed in the store at any one time in addition to staff.
*Those waiting to come inside can browse books on our deck.
*Everyone will be allowed a 20 minute browsing period so that others can have a turn.
And here are some measures we are taking to make it safer inside:
*Three doors and a window will be open at all times for air ventilation.
*A HEPA air filtration system is in place.
*Plexiglass is installed at the register.
*Regular cleaning and sanitizing will continue.
*All staff have been fully vaccinated.
If you are not quite ready to come inside, we understand!
We will continue to offer website ordering, telephone recommendations, contactless order pick-up on our deck, and shipping.
For those that are ready, we can't wait to welcome you into our cozy book house again!
