Business, Curbside Service, Delivery, Shipping and More...

Good Day!

Thanks for visiting our blog. If you read the most recent issue of The Book Bulletin, our bi-weekly newsletter, much of this post will seem repetitive, but it's information worth repeating for readers who are not on our mailing list or may be new to Scrawl Books.  Our blog is going to become far more active over the next few weeks, so please check in often to stay up-to-date with our news, find out what new books we are receiving, and to hear about our online events, book clubs and yes, even virtual trivia!  Our goal is to keep the store going, and to do what we can to maintain a strong sense of community.  

In the meantime, here is the most important information you need to know about our business today: 


We remain open, but have added some healthful restrictions and new services to keep our customers and employees as safe as possible: 

  • Business Hours: Monday - Saturday we will be open from 11:00 am - 7:00 pm; Sundays 12:00 pm - 6:00 pm. We are limiting the number of shoppers in the store to two unrelated people or one family group at a time. 
  • Curbside Pick-up Now Available: Reston Town Center has generously agreed to add a short-term parking spot on Freedom Drive in front of the store so you can call-ahead and have your books brought to the curb or meet us at the door. 
  • Free Delivery Extended:  Our free door-to-door delivery service has been extended to include Reston, Herndon, Sterling and Great Falls.  We will leave books on your porch or doorstep.  We offer same day delivery of books currently on our shelves. 

In-Store vs. Available to Order

We can deliver almost any book, but please note that some may need to be ordered from our warehouse and could take a few days to reach the store.  One-day delivery applies to books that are "On Our Shelves Now."  Books that are "Available to Order" may take a bit longer to reach you. 

We will be posting book recommendations for readers of all ages in the coming days.  New books continue to arrive at the store daily, and every Tuesday, we receive new releases.  Send us your suggestions, book reviews and comments. We would love to hear from you!
