All are welcome, and we are doing everything we can to keep you and our staff safe. We are open now Mon to Sat 9-7, and Sun.10-6. Masks are required, as is hand sanitizing when you enter. Social distancing is encouraged,and we see our customers trying to be mindful and respectful of each other. We will have to limit the number of customers in the store at one time as we get closer to Christmas, but so far we haven't reached our capacity for the 7000 square feet. We have seen a lot more early Christmas shopping -- which is probably a good idea considering the way the pandemic is surging, and the possibilities of a shut-down. ( shudders from everyone... but nothing is more important than getting a handle on this virus and slowing the tragic loss of life).
It is important to note that WE ARE USING ONLY OUR FRONT DOOR WHICH OPENS DIRECTLY ONTO THE PARKING LOT ON THE LIBERTY ST. SIDE OF THE TANNERY. The door to the Tannery indoor mall is closed permanently during the pandemic, except for handicap access, or those who have baby-strollers. It is much safer for customers and staff when we are not a pass-through to the back hall.
For those uncomfortable with coming inside, call us at 978-465-9359, and we will still can do "no contact parking lot pick-up".
And we are still offering free home delivery to all who need it. Twice weekly Paul delivers for us locally. For all our loyal customers who drive a bit more to visit us, we will get your books to you, free of charge. CALL US 978.465.9359, and we can chat about books over the phone,and make our usual stellar recommendations. EMAIL US AT Jabberwockybooks@gmail.com. OR ORDER RIGHT HERE, CHOOSING "PICKUP AT STORE OPTION" AND WE WILL CONTACT YOU TO MAKE ARRANGEMENTS FOR FREE DELIVERY.
Once again a huge Thank-you to all who contributed to The Go-Fund-Me campaign last spring and quite literally ensured our survival. Sue says she has learned that The Jabberwocky really isn't just hers, but belongs to the whole community. Thank you all.
Please everyone stay safe and healthy during the holidays -- The Jabberwocky Staff
The River and the Port: Newburyport
by Local Photographer Curt Sayers
Newburyport contains a rich assortment of beautiful architecture and scenery and this book is a collection of Curt's' favorite images taken through all four seasons and from sunrise to the middle of the night.The River and the Port... is a compilation of full color images of Newburyport and vicinity taken over the last few years, most of them taken during long walks with his girlfriend Cindy and Ben her cocker spaniel. This is not a collection of postcard-type images. Many of the most familiar Newburyport and Merrimac River scenes included in the book have been photographed from a different perspective. Several shots are images stitched together digitally to give broad sharp views of the brick blocks of downtown and Merrimac bridges. Quite a few additional images are of less well known locations that appealed to him personally. The breadth and quality of the images make it appealing to people who live (or have lived) in the area as well as visitors who want to be able to remember the beauty of the area - when they return home.
We would be happy to save you a copy or to ship one to you for a small fee. Please contact the bookstore at 978-465-9359 or email us at email@example.com.
