You’ve got questions, we’ve got answers!

Q: What are your store hours?

A: Currently our hours are 11am to 9pm every day. We are looking to extend our hours in the near future, and we want to hear from you when you would like for us to be open.


Q: How does your store work?

A: We're more than just your average bookstore! We have frequent author events, live music every Thursday, and a cafe offering house made food (sandwiches, salads, pastries) and drinks (coffee, tea, beer/wine).


Q: What if you don’t have a book I want?

A: That’s no problem, we can probably order it for you! It can take up to a week to be delivered in store, so just remember to ask ahead if you need a book by a certain time. We will do everything in our power to make sure we get it when you need it.


A: We’ll order them for you at a special quantity discount (5+ books of the same title)! Just use the order form.

Q: Need books for your book club or study group?


Q: How does holding a book work?

A: Call us or email us to see if we have it in stock, and if we do we'll put it aside for you to pick up. All we need is your name and phone number to put it on hold. If we don’t have the book in stock we will order it and contact you when the book arrives. Holds are reserved for a week after reservation date, and after that it will be shelved with the regular collection unless special arrangements have been requested.


Q: How do I go about asking to have my event take place at Bookery Manchester?

A: Whether you want to have your book club meet in the conference room, or you want to teach a lesson on flower arranging, or you want to bring your blend of music to Bookery Manchester, please complete this form and we will get back to you.


Q: Would I be able to order food over the phone for lunch?

A: Yes! Order ahead for pick up, or come in and browse some new books while you wait. With a quick turnaround time, we will make sure you get where you are going with a full stomach and a smile. (Online Ordering Coming Soon!)


Q: How would I go about having my book sold in your store?

A: One of the things we love about being the only independent bookstore in Manchester is our ability to bring the voices of local authors to our community. If you’d like to see your book in our store, please complete our book consignment form. We will also request a copy of your book to review.


Q: How do I book AN AUTHOR reading?

If you are currently on a book tour and liked to make Bookery Manchester one of your stop, complete our Author event form.


Q: Is it true you have beer on tap?

A: We have beer AND prosecco on tap, actually. In addition to this we have cans of wine and beer, as well as nitro coffee and cold brew on tap.


Q: Would Bookery Manchester be a good place to have my child’s birthday party?

A: Bookery Manchester would be a perfect place for birthday parties of all ages! Our conference room is fully customizable; match it with your theme! Catering is available.
