COVID-19 Updates; Closed to in-person browsing due to lockdown.

Hey bibliophiles,

Due to Ontario being in lockdown, we are currently closed to in-person browsing. But we are happy to assist you via phone, email and DM to @atticbooksca on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook. 
Not sure what to read, check out our book care packages and let us be your personal book shopper. 

New Store Hours: (closed to the public)
Monday to Saturday
10-5 pm

NO BOOK BUYING AT THE MOMENT: We are currently not taking in new stock over the counter for cash or store credit and will not be making appointments or taking drop ins. That will of course change in the future but not until we feel it is safe for staff and customers to take in new stock.

We will be offering Curbside Delivery as well as free local delivery for orders of $25 and over (fee of $5 for orders under $25). We will have cash but encourage use of debit and credit as the machine is a heck of a lot easier to sanitize for everyone’s safety. 😉

Caution: Every book in the store will not be sanitized so please use hand sanitizer before and after handling the books. We will be sanitizing and cleaning frequently touched surfaces, such as the doors, counters, debit and cash area and chairs. If you have handled a book but do not want it, please place it on the counter for a staff member to sanitize and reshelve it.

You can still call ahead (519-432-7277) or email us ( with a book list and we can see if we have them in stock. If we do, we can process everything over the phone and deliver them to your car during store hours. We can also communicate through social media @atticbooksca (Facebook, Instagram and Twitter). 


We know it cannot compare with browsing through our physical shelves but we invite you to visit our website at While it is only a smidge of our total inventory, we have over 14,000 items online for your perusal. Pick a subject and dive deep into some of our quirkiest, random, and rarer items in our collection. A lot of our items have interesting historical facts attached to them so you can learn a tidbit or two along the way. And as with the curbside delivery above, we can deliver them to your car. Just choose the free local pick up shipping option and give us a ring (519-432-7277) when you are here.
