Welcome to Alexander Book Company -

Your Independent Downtown San Francisco Bookstore

Alexander's is Open currently Monday - Friday from 10 am to 5 pm.

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 if you are not fully vaccinated.

Please hand sanitize when you enter. We've removed seating. 

All this said, we have a store full of books awaiting your visit!

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.
