Welcome to Byrd's Books

In light of the Governor's order to close on Monday March 23 at 8:00pm, we are closed to browsing in the store.  Do call us for book suggestions and ideas! (203) 730-2973.

We are in the store his week Tuesday-Saturday: 10:00am- 2:00pm * Closed Mon & Sun. Pick up in the outside bin only, by appointment. We will be closed Monday.

At the same time, Steve and I will be in the store processing online orders and returning phone messages. Please know, that because I live in the same building as the store this is feasable at this time - I will let you know if this changes (Alice). Any further updates will be on this website and our Facebook page.

We are touched by your generosity and friendship and we are grateful for your book orders. We are working to bring some author- driven video content to your homes. 

Our wish is for you and yours to keep safe and stay well.

Thank you for your support of independent bookselling,  Alice & Stephen
