Oct, 19th 2020 - Fall Preview with Valerie Lewis 

An online event  - Wednesday, Oct 28 at 7 p.m.

Hicklebee's co-owner Valerie Lewis will be presenting the best new children's books in an evening for adults. She'll give you the scoop on dozens of titles from a wide range of publishers--great reading for kids from kindergarten to eighth grade. Your $10 ticket includes an annotated list of the books presented.

Sunday hours will be from noon to 4 p.m. Also, we're increasing our Tuesday through Friday weekday hours: We'll still be opening at 11 a.m. and then continuing to 5 p.m. Saturday hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. (We remain closed on Mondays.)

Thanks so much for your patience during the pandemic. We're letting eight customers (up from six) into the store at a time, still requiring people to use hand sanitizer and wear masks. We appreciate your cooperation in our efforts to keep shopping safe.

Reading for National Hispanic Heritage Month

Starting Sept. 15 (a date marking independence day in several counties), National Hispanic Heritage Month honors the cultures of Hispanic and Latino Americans. Some resources are here, and we've got lots of books on display that celebrate Latinx characters, stories, and themes.



Sept 22nd - May her memory inspire
more reading  


Booksellers heartily love Ruth Bader Ginsburg's quote, "Reading shaped my dreams, and more reading helped me make my dreams come true." Many are the books about her life and work, including several biographies for young readers. We have a selection on hand, and orders for ones that are in short supply will be filled as soon as possible. 



Sept 8th, 2020 - MUCH SPIFFIER

You can't always get a great dumpster-free photo.

But you get the idea: We've repainted the back

of the store and installed a new door.

Customer pickup here has become just that much nicer.
