We are reopening for in-store shopping, by appointment only!

Hello, Friends!  

We are so pleased to announce that we are opening our doors again!  For the time being, shopping in the store can be done by appointment only. Starting August 3rd, we will schedule two appointments in each time slot, rather than just one. Request an appointment time using this form or by calling us a (509) 965-5830.  Please plan on bringing no more than 5 additional people with you to your appointment, and please wear your masks.  If you don't have a mask, we are happy to provide you with one.  Surfaces in the store will be sanitized after each appointment.  If you have any questions about making an appointment, please email emily@inklingsbookshop.com.  We can't wait to see you!

Closing for Inventory!

We will be closed for inventory on January 18th and 19th!  We apologize for the inconvenience, but when we reopen on Monday, the 20th, the store will be tidy and our inventory will be accurate.  No more "I'm sorry, we are supposed to have that book in stock, but we can't find it" (hopefully)!

Christmas Hours

We will be closing at 4 PM on Tuesday, December 24th, and will be closed on Wednesday, December 25th.  We hope that all your days are merry and bright!

Closed during the blizzard!

Hi, friends! It’s an actual BLIZZARD out there, so we are closed today. Please place your orders online, leave us a message at (509)965-5830, or email at orders@inklingsbookshop.com. And if you need a book to tide you over, check out Libro.fm! 

It's time for inventory!

Attention, lovely Friends of Inklings: It's that time of year again. The holiday shopping season has ended, and we've done our best cleaning up, but we have one more step before we can fully rein in the chaos. We'll be closing early today (January 11th) and we'll be closed all day tomorrow (January 12th) so that we can inventory every item in the store. That's right, we'll be handling every single book, every single enamel pin, every single pair of funky reading glasses, to count items and make sure that they are where they're supposed to be.


Attention, shoppers!  It's that time of year again... inventory time. We hate to miss seeing your lovely faces for even a day, but we have to get the store back into shipshape order so that we know exactly what's in the store, and where it all is.  To make this possible, we'll be closing at 5 PM on Friday, January 12th and will be closed all day on Saturday, the 13th.  We'll be open regular hours (12-6) on Sunday the 14th, and we can't wait to see you then!

Santana's Book Drive - Success!!!

I'm so happy to announce that we hit our donation goal for Santana's Book Drive!  Next, we'll be ordering books and distributing them to first graders across the Yakima School District!  Be sure to check back for updates.  We'll share reactions from local kids, their teachers and families as we are able.  We are so grateful to our friends for coming out in droves to support the Moras' beautiful endeavor!
