Great news, everyone! Old Capitol Books is reopening on Thursday, April 8. At our new home on the second floor of 482 Alvarado Street in Downtown Old Monterey, we're open Thursdays - Sundays, 12pm-6pm.
Drop-in customers are always welcome when there's enough space. But, because the number of simultaneous customers is limited by Covid regulations, you can make an appointment online for opening weekend that will ensure you up to one hour of shelf-browsing pleasure.
Accessing Our Store
If you enter through the front doors of 482 Alvarado Street, you can either use the elevator or the stairs to get to the second floor. Accessible parking is located behind the building at 499 Calle Principal. From that lot, you can enter through the back door of the building directly onto the second floor.
Though the store is a work in progress, the entrance to the shop and the open aisles are 34-36 inches across. Bookstore staff are always happy to help you access hard-to-reach high shelves.
