If you need some new reading material, there’s good news.

Bay Used Books reopened for in-store shopping as of Saturday, May 23. 

“We are ready to welcome you back!” said a Facebook post from the store.

“Thanks to Querney's Office Plus and Cosmos Glass we have the prettiest plexiglass barrier in town. Gloves and hand sanitizer are ready to use and social distancing markers and guidelines are in place.”

The used book store, located at 124 Elm St. in downtown Sudbury, has new store hours of 12-5 p.m. Monday to Saturday. It’s closed on Sunday.

The store is offering shopping by appointment from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. Monday to Saturday. 

“We will also continue to accept online orders with curb-side pick up for anyone who is not ready to visit us in person,” the store said on Facebook.

If you’re bringing in books to the store for credit, the store will only be accepting one bag or small cardboard box per visit. All incoming books will be quarantined for at least 24 hours.
