This is good for adults and kids, laid out the way a good non-chain store should be. They had a bunch of cute Easter stuff right upfront, since that was the holiday weekend. Also, there was a cat perched on the register next to some cat books. Yes, a real cat. Good selection, and not just books.

Not just a lot of books, but lots of books with sales people that know and appreciate them! It can be crowded at times when the coast has a lot of visitors

helpful staff, although I miss the cat who used to hang out under the windows. Nice window seats to browse thru the books.

An endangered species, the independent bookstore! Lots of interesting items in addition to books. Pay them a visit and see.

I've visited this bookshop over and over again through the last 30 years it's one of the only things in Mendocino that remains full of good memories. So many shops have closed (the economy and retiree's) but the Gallery Bookshop stays strong and has little gems in every corner. It was great coming to Mendocino again to find it still in business! I hope it always remains a cornerstone of the town.
