Bookstore Reopening: Hours & Details

We’re excited to welcome everyone back to our bookstore for curbside pick-up and in-store browsing. For the safety of our employees and community, anyone who enters must wear a face mask. In order to accommodate enhanced cleaning procedures and comply with current health protocols, we have adjusted our opening hours:

  • Monday-Tuesday: 10am-6pm
    Curbside Pick-Up Only
  • Wednesday-Sunday: 11am-7pm
    In-Store Browsing & Curbside Pick-Up

The Center for Fiction is more than just a bookstore, and many of you are probably wondering about access to other parts of the space. At this time, the auditorium, café-bar, and the second floor, which includes the general members area, Writers Studio, and the bulk of our library, remain closed for now. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we begin this phased reopening of our space.

To order books for curbside pick-up, please email or give us a call at (212) 755-6710 ext. 1. You can order books for delivery by visiting
