Mask Update!

Blue Marble Books has decided to lift the mask requirement for vaccinated customers. We do strongly encourage unvaccinated customers to still wear a mask. We also encourage vaccinated visitors who are more comfortable wearing a mask to still do so. Our goal is to provide a comfortable and safe space for all of our guests! We are keeping up to date on the different variants, so we may reassess our decision in the future. Thank you for your understanding!


Summer Reading

Now introducing: Blue Marble Summer Reading! Come in and pick up one of our summer reading bookmarks and a chapter book! Each little marble on the bookmark represents one book. Once all 10 are punched through, your reader wins a FREE book! We will keep track of the books read/bought by hole punching the summer reading bookmark so make sure not to lose it! This summer reading challenge is open to 1st graders and up!
