You asked, we answered!

Is Betty’s Books a children’s bookstore?

While we carry a selection of picture books and board books (and have a super fun kids’ area), we are not a children’s bookstore. Our specialty is comics, graphic novels, and manga, and our selection ranges from babies all the way to grownups. In fact, some of the books in our adult section are very child un-friendly!

Do you carry single issue comics?

No. We have a wide variety of comics from DC, Marvel, Image, and other major publishers, but we exclusively carry their trades, omnibuses, and other collected editions.

Do you have a webstore/Do you ship?

Yes, and yes! You can access our webstore here, and when checking out, you have the option to choose in-store pick up or shipping.

Can I sell my work at Betty’s Books?

Thanks for your interest! We get a lot of requests from local artists and authors to carry their work, so we ask that you start by filling out this application. Please read the details on the application page carefully.

I’m involved with a charity event, and would like to have Betty’s Books donate something.

How can I stay up-to-date with news and updates from Betty’s Books?

Sign up for our newsletter here! It’s chock full of bookish news, updates from BB’s, upcoming releases, and more.

Do you have any book clubs?

We do! Our monthly Graphic Novel Book Club is going strong, and you can sign up for the Graphic Novel Book Club newsletter here, which is the best way to stay up-to-date on monthly book picks. Plus, you’ll be able to vote on upcoming books!

Do you host [insert event here]?

We host several regular events, including: D&D for ages 10-13, Art Club for ages 15 and up, Storytime for ages 0-5 every Thursday from 10:30-11:30, and more. Check our calendar here to see everything we’ve got scheduled.

If you’re looking to host your own event, we have party packages for kids here and adults here. If you’re looking to host a recurring event, you can reach out to us here. Please be as detailed as possible.

Are you hiring?

Most likely, no. We have a very small staff! If you’re ever interested in applying for a position, you can check our linktree here, and if the application is linked, then we are probably hiring. If you don’t see it, then we’re not! Alternatively, keep an eye out on our Instagram, where we always announce open positions.

I love Betty’s Books! How else can I support you?

Your support means the world to us! There are several ways you can help support the shop, all of which are detailed here. On behalf of the BB Crew, thank you!! <3
