Great News!!

The outlet is reopening June 19th!

We will be open only on Fridays from 10am to 8pm and Saturdays from 10am to 4pm.  We do not have plans at this time for a Monday and Wednesday opening.

We will have a few requirements when we open.

Everyone coming into the store will be required to wear a mask or a full face plastic shield.  This will be strictly enforced. 

We will limit the number of customers in the store to 6 at all times.  This will be strictly enforced.  We will enforce a 6 foot limit between those waiting outside the store.

We will strongly encourage customers to limit their shopping time while in the store and to maintain social distancing to the extent possible.  We know this will be challenging with the size of our facility!

All customers will be required to sign in to enter the store and provide a phone number and/or email in case we need to contact you.

As you can imagine, we have used our reserves to pay our bills during this shut down.  We need our customers to support our bottom line and to help us support the Aurora Library system.  We are grateful for your membership and we look forward to opening in full at some point in the future.  Until then, we are doing all we can to minimize the risk to our customers and volunteers.

Thank you for your support of Friends Book Outlet.  We look forward to seeing you soon.

Store Update

We sincerely hope that all of you are safe and healthy.

Tri-County Health has extended the stay at home order to May 8th for Arapahoe and Adams counties. So we will not be opening before then, and probably not until later than that date.

This also means we are unable to take donations at this time.

Please stay home if you can, stay safe, stay healthy. We will get through this, and eventually see each other again at our favorite book outlet!

(Also a reminder that our email is under construction, so feel free to head over to our Facebook page and drop us a comment. We hope to have the email up and running soon!)

COVID 19 update

The Book Outlet will be closing for two weeks because of the corona virus. The Aurora libraries and schools have been closed also and we feel this is in the best interest of our customers and volunteers. But you’ll have one last shot at getting the books, puzzles, CDs, DVDs, and what ever else you need to see you through. We will be open Saturday, March 14 at regular business hours, 10am until 4pm. We are being very conscientious and are wiping down surfaces and door handles to keep everyone safe and comfortable. So please come in and get whatever you need. Thank you.
