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. 

Currently we are open our regular hours. 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.

In the coming days we'll also 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

And with 100 Things to Do in Nebraska Before You Die as your guide, you'll see just what it is people love so much about the state.

The book is a veritable bucket list of places to visit, things to do, and top tips for the best places to eat and sleep. Explore the birthplaces of Nebraska-centric events and people. From the founding of Arbor Day to the hometown of Johnny Carson, as well as great places to eat and drink, 100 Things to Do in Nebraska Before You Die explores the diversity and beauty of the country's 16th largest state.

Local authors and travel bloggers Tim and Lisa Trudell are your expert guides through the diversity and beauty of the country's sixteenth largest state. Whether you call yourself a Husker, or are just passing through, this book will help you see Nebraska in a new light.
