We're excited to announce that our Seattle Program Center Bookstore will reopen for browsing beginning Tuesday, November 3! We''ll be open for you to peruse from 12pm-6pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays. In an effort to protect our staff, we'll continue these hours into the winter until the pandemic improves significantly, and will make an announcement about returning to normal hours as we're able.

To celebrate, we're launching our annual Winter Book Sale early so you have plenty of time to take advantage of the great deals through December.

The following discounts are available for books and other products in the bookstore:

  • 25% off all books
  • 35% off book bundles
  • 50% off book 'seconds'
  • 40% off merchandise  

We also have extra discounted items available: T-shirts for $2, and USGS maps for $1!

In order to best protect our staff and customers, we are limiting the bookstore capacity to 2 customers, masks will be required at all times in the building, and hand sanitizer will be provided. When the bookstore is at capacity, there will be room in the lobby for people to stand in queue. Bathrooms will be available for customer use. 

Can I still order online through mountaineers books for in-store pickup?

Yes! In-store pickup for orders you've placed with Mountaineers Books will continue to be available, however the Bookstore's Winter Sale discounts do not apply to online orders.

The 25% off all books is not reflected in the cart. Is there a promo code? Also, I can't find the $2 t-shirts or $1 maps online.

Hi Kathy, the 25% off deal is only for purchases in-person at the bookstore, it is not available online through Mountaineers Books. The bookstore doesn't take orders, only in-person sales, so we'd love to see you in the store sometime! Plenty of t-shirts and maps are both available. If you have any further questions, please don't hesitate to reach out to Member Services - 206-521-6001 or

Hi Kathy, I actually just heard from Mountaineers Books that they will be running a 25% off sale through November, and the code is now up and running on the Mountaineers Books website. I'm sorry for the confusion! It still remains that $1 maps and $2 t-shirts are only available in the bookstore though! Let us know if you have any other questions!

I'm also having difficulty with the 25% off books- the only code I see is for only 20% off. Please send/share the code for the winter sale 25% off books! And how to get a t-shirt for $2 if a code for that too. TIA
