January 14 Update:
Beginning Sunday, January 17 we will be closing at 6:00 pm until further notice, awaiting an improvement in local conditions. As ever, we are taking every precaution available to ensure the safety of our staff and community within our store. In addition to our 10:00 am - 6:00 pm browsing hours, we remain available by phone/for curbside pickup from 9:00 am - 6:00 pm, and orders can be placed through our website at any time. We appreciate your understanding.
Chaucer's Books is an independent, full service, overstocked bookstore located on upper State Street in Santa Barbara, CA that has been a mainstay for booklovers near and far since 1974. We carry north of 150,000 titles and will happily do anything we can to swiftly procure books for you that we don't currently carry in stock. We're committed to providing our community with an impressive depth and breadth of texts in any and all subjects, as well as excellent customer service (including recommendations from our well-read staff). We also carry a wide selection in cards, puzzles, games, & gifts curated to any age. Come in and say hello!
