What's Happening at The Bookworm

We are open for walk-in customers if you prefer to browse.
Beginning Monday, March 23, our hours will be 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday and Noon to 4 p.m. on Sunday.  Book groups that meet in the evenings are either postponed or will find an alternative meeting place. Several of our book groups are continuing to meet online using Zoom. Contact your book group facilitator for more information. If you need help getting started using Zoom, let us know and we will put you in touch with someone who can help.

Quarantine Puzzle Exchange

We have received a wonderful response to last week's request for people to donate gently used jigsaw puzzles to our Quarantine Puzzle Exchange.

We know that many of our customers are itching for puzzles, and we thought a great way to engage with the community and keep puzzle-doers satisfied would be to host a Quarantine Puzzle Exchange. The donated puzzles have been cleaned and rested for two days just to be on the safe side.

At this time, we are no longer taking donations of gently used puzzles. However, we will continue to have puzzles available for pick-up in exchange for a donation to The Food Bank for the Heartland.

We want to thank everyone for making the puzzle exchange a great success. Enjoy your puzzles, and stay safe.

COVID-19 Updates: Store Hours, Delivery Options Including Curbside & Courier, Personal Shopper Options, and More!

Dear Friends,

We are writing to keep you updated on The Bookworm's plans for COVID-19 (coronavirus) as well as address any questions you may have regarding our operations, delivery options, and more. 

First and foremost, our hearts go out to those in our community and beyond that have been impacted by the virus. The health and well-being of our booksellers, customers, and authors are of greatest importance and we will continually review and update our actions in accordance with new information from the CDC and local authorities. 

We’re increasing cleaning of surfaces, credit card terminals, bathrooms, door handles, etc. Plus our booksellers are washing their hands frequently and we encourage our guests to do the same.

We'll be sharing more book suggestions by our website, email blasts, and social media. We want to keep you inspired with all the great books new and old you have yet to discover! And in order to make sure readers are still getting the books they need—to escape, broaden your horizons, or take your mind off things—we are implementing the following delivery options: 

We will continue to ship books both locally and anywhere in the country. For orders over $100, shipping will be free of charge, and for all other orders, we’ll deduct $2 off the normal shipping fee. Please shop our website (fastest and open 24/7!) or call to place your order.

Courier Delivery
We will offer free contact-less delivery on orders over $30 to the following zip codes initially: 68106, 68114, 68124, 68132, 68144, 68154.  We may make adjustments to the zip codes with free delivery later. We plan to deliver 3 days a week with the delivery day at the discretion of The Bookworm to best service the most customers as possible. On our website, please select at checkout "Courier Delivery."

Curbside Pick-up
We are happy to deliver your purchases to you at the curb. Place and pay for your order by phone or our website first. Once confirmed as in-stock by our booksellers, we'll have your order ready! Just give us a call upon your arrival, let us know your car's make/model and color, and we'll run the delivery out (please, no payment at the car... credit card pre-pay to minimize contact).  On our website, please select at checkout "Curbside Pick-up."

All independent, brick-and-mortar businesses will be challenged during this epidemic. It is times like these where we feel grateful for our Bookworm family of customers and booksellers, and we cannot thank you enough for your continued loyalty. Other ways you can support The Bookworm:

If you prefer to listen to your books, please use Libro.fm, a phone app / website like Audible, but our store gets a small portion of the proceeds. This link will take you to the Libro website, and you will receive special offers if you use the code SHOPBOOKSTORESNOW.

Gift Cards
Gift cards are a great way to help us keep the lights on and you can redeem them at any time. Surprise a friend with a gift card by phone/email, and we'll be ready to be their personal shopper! Buy online and we'll mail the gift card for free!

We are happy to be your personal shopper and can suggest new games and puzzles to discover, assemble an assortment of greeting cards so you can remain in touch with friends and loved ones, or suggest gift ideas we can send directly to your recipients to spark some joy in these challenging times. Just give us a ring at (402) 392-2877 or email us at info@bookwormomaha.com and we’ll discuss your needs and get the goods to you in one of the aforementioned distribution methods.

From our family to yours, we wish for the best in these challenging times and for the health and well-being of our booksellers, customers, and authors. We're grateful for the decades of joy The Bookworm has brought to our lives.

- Phil and Beth Black
