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?
