We're excited to announce that our Seattle Program Center bookstore has reopened for curbside pickup on Tuesday and Thursdays from 3pm-6pm! We'll also launched our annual Summer Book Sale, with 25% off all books, 35% off book bundles, and 40% off merchandise. Order over the phone or online, and swing by during one of our twice weekly pickup times.

Our pickup hours will be 3pm-6pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and orders must be placed in advance. We’ll have tables at the front entrance so that you can pay and take your books without entering the building.

Participate in Curbside Pickup

There are two ways to place an order for curbside pickup: online through Mountaineers Books, or over the phone through the bookstore. Please follow one of the methods below to place your order. Pickup instructions are listed at the bottom.

Option 1: Order books online

Step 1: purchase books on mountaineers.org

Use our Mountaineers Books website to purchase titles you're interested in. Simply find the desired titles and add to your cart!

Note that the inventory online of Mountaineers Books and Green Trails Maps may be different than what's available in the bookstore. We cannot guarantee we will have everything you want in stock in the bookstore.

STEP 2: CHOOSE CURBSIDE PICKUP AND COMPLETE PAYMENT

Choose the 'curbside pickup' delivery option and complete payment. You can place an order as late as 2pm Monday for Tuesday pickup, or 2pm Wednesday for Thursday pickup. Books ordered before those dates and times will be prepared to be picked up at the next closest pickup date.

Don't forget to include the promo code TIMETOREAD at checkout to receive 25% off your order!

option 2: order over the phone

Step 1: Browse Online

Use our website to browse Mountaineers Books and identify any Mountaineers titles you might be interested in. In addition to books, all other bookstore items will be available for pickup, including:

  • Maps (Green Trails, USGS, Nat. Geographic, and more)
  • NW Forest Pass and Discover Pass
  • Mountaineers merchandise

Note that the inventory online of Mountaineers Books and Green Trails Maps may be different than what's available in the bookstore. We cannot guarantee we will have everything you want in stock in the bookstore.

Step 2: cALL MEMBER SERVICES

When you're ready to order, call Member Services at 206-521-6001, Mon-Fri 9am-5pm. We'll take your order over the phone and you'll select a pickup date. We can accept orders on the same day of pickup as long as they're placed before 3pm. Note: We may or may not have everything you request, and when you pick up your order we'll give you everything available.

Pick Up Your Order

Arrive at the Seattle Program Center wearing a face mask and remain 6 feet away from any other customers who may also be waiting outside. When it's your turn, we'll invite you to the table positioned in our entry. For orders made over the phone, if we weren't able to find any of the books or maps you requested, we will inform you at that time. We'll apply your Summer Book Sale discount, take your payment, and you'll go home with your new items!

If you have any questions or would like further information, check out our FAQ below. If you still have questions, please don't hesitate to contact Member Services at 206-521-6001 or info@mountaineers.org.

You’ve got some great non-Mountaineer printed titles on your shelves, especially on Canadian topics, but there is really no way of knowing that unless we can browse your shelves. Could you maybe post photos of those shelves, so that we could at least browse titles?
