Boneshaker Books is a community supported, collectively organized, and volunteer run bookstore. Our mission is to provide a welcoming space that promotes social justice and movements through books, education, and activism. We offer progressive and radical literature and a place to spark conversation, inform, and inspire.

Purchase in our store or place a special order online for pickup. If you are local, you can choose to have your purchase delivered to you by bicycle! Our volunteers staff one 3-4 hour shift a week, and often participate on a committee, like ordering, events or promotion. Interested? Find out how to volunteer.

We also house the Women's Prison Book Project. This great group provides books to female and transgender inmates across the country through mail requests. Buy books online here to donate to the project, as well!
