We're Open Again! 

Thank you!!! To everyone who has purchased books online or by phone and email while our doors been closed to walk-in business. Thanks to everyone who purchased gift certificates or made a donation to Sundial Books. All of your support has helped us keep going and we are extremely grateful.

We re-opened to the public on May 29 at 10:00am.  In order to allow everyone to be as safe as possible, we are requiring that masks be worn in the store, are limiting the number of people to six at a time and limiting browsing/buying time to 30 minutes. We will be cleaning regularly and disinfecting frequently touched surfaces throughout the day. We appreciate your support as we all get used to this new way of operating.

We continue to encourage you to buy books online, including e-books and audio books. We have now added LP’s to the online inventory as well.

Please note that we are not currently accepting used books for trade credit. We hope to resume that activity at some point this summer so please save your boxes of books until we can safely process the incoming items.

Our hours will be Monday - Saturday: 10am - 5pm
Sunday: Noon - 5pm

Hours will likely be expanded as we move forward


We look forward to seeing you this summer!

“Surfing culture is a uniquely American institution with its own music, fashion and language. It is celebrated in this illustration, as a US flag hangs over a 1957 Chevrolet Nomad loaded with surfboards and headed to Assateague beach. In the background is the iconic Sundial Books building at the foot of the old Chincoteague swing bridge.” — Erick Sahler
