Welcome to Alexander Book Company -

Your Independent Downtown San Francisco Bookstore

We are currently OPEN from 11am to 4pm Monday-Friday.

We also will be OPEN the SATURDAYS of December 5, 12 and 19 from 11am to 4pm.

We certainly wish for everyone to stay healthy, and we will do our best to keep the store clean and safe. Please be sure to bring and wear a MASK. Please hand sanitize when you enter. Restrooms will be closed for the time being. We've also removed seating. 

All this said, we still have a store full of books and more books.

YOU CAN ALWAYS CHECK ON-HAND AVAILABILITY THROUGH OUR WEBSITE, BUT IF QUANTITIES ARE LOW IT IS ALWAYS A GOOD IDEA TO CALL TO CONFIRM.
