We understand that our post office system is under great strain, with some hubs working with a third of their normal staff or fewer.  Please know that the warehouses, which are working as rapidly as they can to ship your orders to you, and our shipping partners, may delay your shipments beyond what you would normally expect.  Please be patient.  Everyone is doing their very best under trying circumstances and the situation seems to be improving daily.

Dear Friends,  

We are so humbled and  grateful that you are all continuing  to shop with us either on this website or on www.bookshop.org/shop/saturnbooksellers during this strange time.

As of Monday, June 15th, we are opening the bookstore to shoppers again.  We're so excited to welcome you back, but please note that as the health and safety of my staff and our customers is my first priority, we'll have some new rules in place. Everyone who isn't riding in a stroller will be required to wear a mask.  Everyone will be asked to spritz their hands with sanitizer on the way in, and everyone must keep six feet of social distancing between themselves and other shoppers and staff.  Because of our size and configuration, we can only accomodate four shoppers plus staff in the shop at a time, so folks may be asked to wait outside or in the coffee shop if we have a 'crowd'.  Many thanks in advance for your patience and cooperation as we all navigate through this.

We will still offer curbside pickup for anyone not comfortable coming into the bookstore (or anyone who doesn't want to wear a mask), and, of course, you can order here and have your books shipped directly to your house or elect to pick them up in the store.

THANK YOU, THANK YOU, for purposefully keeping Saturn alive during this challenging time.  Be well!  We love you.

Jill, Jody, Amy, Katie, Karin, Maryann and Anna

Welcome to Saturn Booksellers


Saturn Booksellers, right in the heart of the Alpine Village, has been Gaylord's hometown bookshop since 1992.  It is a general, independent shop for readers of all ages. 

Our 'new' spot at 127 W. Main St. sports the same shuttered cash wrap and pickled wood interior locals have long loved, and  fresh new finishes in an open and inviting space.  A friendly, knowledgeable staff composed of true bibliophiles, a wide selection of books, toys, games and unique gifts, a full calendar of events and a real sense of fun make Saturn Booksellers a destination for locals and tourists alike.

Some of the fun awards the shop has won over the years are: Michigan Retailer of the Year Award for small businesses, our local Chamber of Commerce's Golden Pineapple Award for Best Customer Service, the Valpak and American Express Shop Small National Grand Prize, and Various Reader Poll Awards for Best Customer Service, Best Bookstore, Best Store Staff, Best Workplace Culture, Best Boss, Best Place to Work, Best Overall Company to Work For and Best Hangout - we hope you agree!
