Our Bookstores

The BEST bookstores in Diamond Bar!

Basically BOOKS is closing, but stay tuned!

Update as of 1/11/2021: Our bookstore Basically BOOKS will close at 23447 Golden Springs Drive effective immediately. When the COVID19 pandemic has passed, watch for us to reopen at a new location in Diamond Bar (to be announced). We look forward to again welcoming our customers at that time. Please follow our Facebook page for the most up-to-date information: https://www.facebook.com/BasicallyBooksDB/

____________________________________________________

Customers will be required to wear face masks to enter the store, and will be given disposable latex gloves to wear as they examine books for purchase. Also, admittance to the store will be monitored by the staff so that only a certain number of customers will be inside at any one time. Thank you for your understanding of these measures; they will ensure that we are in compliance with current health regulations and will enable all our customers to have a worry-free shopping experience.

Meanwhile, the Friends of the Library’s other Basically BOOKS book store, the one located inside the Diamond Bar Library (aka BB4), is not scheduled for reopening at this time.

Basically BOOKS, the Diamond Bar Friends of the Library’s two non-profit bookstores, are friendly places serving the community as a resource for school, work and pleasure reading at exceptionally low prices.

Thanks to our generous donors, we have hundreds of high quality used books and media for sale. Stop by for great deals on books in all categories, including cooking, fiction, classics, reference, children’s and foreign language such as Chinese and Korean. We also have CDs, DVDs, and audiobooks available as well. The selection changes constantly as new donations are received – so drop by often!

Besides our regular store hours we have monthly buck-a-bag sidewalk sales full of great bargains that are held on the third Saturday of each month. However, sidewalk sales are currently on pause.

Basically Books is staffed by volunteers and proceeds from the bookstores benefit the Diamond Bar Library. Gift certificates are available and make great birthday or special occasion gifts.

Bookstore manager Mary Hackett is looking for people who enjoy books and are able to volunteer a few hours per week for this worthy cause. It’s also a great way to meet new friends and to serve our community. If you are interested, or have any questions about Basically Books, please contact Mary directly at BasicallyBOOKS@aol.com or call 909-702-1095.

Thank you!

Mary Hackett
Bookstore Manager

All our store merchandise is donated by the surrounding community. Tax deductible donations are greatly appreciated. (However, we cannot accept encyclopedia sets, magazines, VHS tapes, or water damaged, bug-infested, and moldy books.) Please drop off donations during store hours.
