Dear friends:

It's our 46th birthday! No fooling: We first opened our doors on April Fools' Day in 1974. Our plan was to re-open to the public on this special day, to welcome you back into our stores with smiles, laughter, great books, maybe a few tears. But the COVID-19 crisis has only worsened, and things seem as uncertain now as they did when we closed several weeks ago. Our business has been profoundly affected, of course, and we know your lives have been turned upside down as well. Above all, we hope you and your loved ones are safe.

We're extending our closure at least through April 30. We remain open for business online at changinghands.com, and we'll continue assembling and shipping our Booklover Care Packages so that you can reach out to loved ones while social distancing.

Many of you have asked what you can do to help us through this—to help keep our stores viable, our staff of 60 booksellers and bartenders paid, and to ensure another 46 years of Changing Hands Bookstore. Well, it's our birthday month, so we don't mind saying . . .

The best birthday gift you can give us right now is to buy a Changing Hands or First Draft Book Bar gift card to use when we re-open. It's effectively a mini-loan for us, and some guaranteed future happiness for you! If you have the means, you can order here. If you don't, though, we understand completely.

Either way, we miss you, book people. And we ❤ you. Please stay safe, stay healthy, and keep reading. We'll get through this together, apart.

— Your friends at Changing Hands Bookstore
