Keeping Our Distance; Sending Our Best

Social distancing is a perplexing new experience for all of us, and Hicklebee's has closed its doors in accordance with the Santa Clara County efforts to prevent the growth of the COVID-19 emergency. But although our doors are closed, we will continue to work to get the right books into your sheltered-in-place hands.

We are taking online orders through our website and telephone orders at 408-292-8880. If you call outside of our operation hours, please leave a voicemail and we will get back to you as soon as possible.

Through April 7th, we are offering free media mail shipping. We will also have curbside pick up available at the store from 10:00-2:00pm, Monday-Saturday. If you have particular needs, please contact us at, and we will do our best to arrange delivery. We're all in this together and ideas from you about how we can best serve you, are welcome.

Don't know exactly what you need? Our knowledgeable staff is eager to help you find books, toys, puzzles, and gifts that will make staying at home more educational and more pleasant. For personal assistance, call the store or email *Carol Doup Muller at

*Carol is the Hicklebee's book buyer for its adult sections, some of its children's books and is the writer/editor of our newsletter. For years she was the book review editor for the San Jose Mercury News and served as a board member of the National Book Critics Circle. She created the popular Worth the Candle ensuring our favorite books from the past are not forgotten.

Thank you for your deeply appreciated support of Hicklebee's.
