Dear Friend of Old Town Books,

As always, we thank you for your support for San Angelo’s independent bookstore. We are as happy to be here, surrounded by books and booklovers, as we were on the day we opened. We are doing fine, considering we are mid-way through a hot West Texas summer and in the middle of a pandemic. We are fortunate that READING is something everybody CAN DO within the confines of COVID! However, we, like all other retailers, suffer from the general “slow- down” that the threats of COVID have created within all of our daily lives.

We would like to remind you of our various services, in hopes that you can find a way to continue enjoying all the interesting and entertaining reads that OTB has to offer:

**Our store at 506 S. Chadbourne is open M-F, 10:00-6:00 and Sat., 10:00-5:00. We keep the temps nice and cool inside, but if you prefer more warmth and sunshine, our patio is just waiting for you! We offer free coffee throughout the day or a cool cup of water! Our bookshelves and tables are packed with fabulous BOOKS, and we always have a sale table or two, along with our $5 books on the patio. We invite you to come in and browse; maybe an incredible book will magically FIND YOU!

**We have an online store which you will find on our web site You can browse books online and order online, by email ( , or by phone (325-703-5151).

**We would be very happy to tele-shop with you! Just call us and let us know what you are looking for, and one of our staff will walk around the bookstore and offer specific ideas or suggestions.

**You can pick up your order in our store, or we offer curb-side pick-up, as well as free delivery within San Angelo.

**If you would like to send a book as a gift, we are happy to deliver books within San Angelo or mail books anywhere in the United States for a flat mailing fee of $5.

**If you live outside of San Angelo and you cannot come by the store, you can shop for your books in our online store. Again, you can pay online or you can call or email your request, and we will mail your books to you for a flat mailing fee of $5. If you would like to send a book as a gift to someone who lives out of town or out of state, please give us your request, and we will mail your book gift to that person.

Lastly, we would like to ask you a BIG FAVOR! Will you please share this information with anyone who might be a booklover or who might enjoy our children and YA selections? And if you know a wonderful person (in San Angelo or anywhere in the US) who would like to support an independent bookstore instead of Amazon, please forward this letter to them!

Thank you for reading this and for supporting Old Town Books!

All our best,
Mary Ellen and the Crew at OTB
