DDG Covid 19 Response

As I’m sure you know on May 11th the State’s Rural Reopening Plan went into effect in Franklin County. The Covid 19 pandemic has called upon all of us to seek balance between our social and economic activities and our health and safety. After a most careful consideration of the health and safety of DDG’s customers and staff I decided that our current practice of curbside delivery, phone and online orders, and shipping, remain the best practice for both the community we serve and the bookstore you have been so kind in supporting. In short, we are not making any changes in our services at this time. Thank you so much for your past, present and future business.

At DDG we strive to support the community through thick and thin with literacy outreach, donations, working collaboratively with area non-profits and schools.  Here are some things DDG is doing now to make it easier for all of you to keep good books in your hands during the weeks and months ahead. 

Donation of books to area families.

The shopping floor of DDG is closed to the public however DDG staff will continue to be right here in the store answering the phones, emails, and filling online orders.

We are currently offering an array of new and old services to meet your book needs. We have a dynamic and full featured website offering store and staff picks, DDG book reviews, and online book search and ordering options. These options include both online credit card payment and shipping, as well the choice to select curbside pick up at store. Here are some new services in response to the present crisis.
