Grinnell College Pioneer Bookshop

The Official Bookstore for Grinnell College

The Pioneer Bookshop is open with public health safety measures in place. To keep everyone as safe as possible, we require masks, provide hand sanitizer and limit the number of shoppers to 10 at one time. Sometimes that means the door is locked. Ring the doorbell and we'll help you. We have installed clear barriers where face to face interaction is common.

What if I want to avoid coming inside?

In Store Pickup: Shop in our online store. Choose "In Store Pickup" as your shipping choice. When you arrive, ring our doorbell and we’ll take your package to you at the door.

Curbside Delivery: We will even deliver outside to your car! Order from the online store. Call us when you arrive 641-269-3424. 

We can also send orders to the campus mailroom or ship to your home.
