We have jigsaw puzzles, craft kits, family games, the softest plush, birthday cards and more, making us your one-stop shop this holiday season and all year. Gift wrapping is always free! In addition to in-store shopping (maximum of 8 customers at a time), we provide curbside pick-up and shared-cost mailing to anywhere in the U.S. Can’t make up your mind or are in a rush? Ask for recommendations or place your order by phone (703-548-4092) or email (ellen@hooray4books.com). We sell gift cards, too!

    Shop early, so you don’t miss out on the latest Diary of a Wimpy Kid or signed copies of Anxious People by Fredrik Backman, author of the New York Times bestseller A Man Called Ove. Before COVID-19, we took authors to local schools, hosted youth advisory councils, held book launches, provided free story times, and supported the community in many other ways. Please Shop Local NOW, so you can Shop Local FOREVER!
