We are so grateful for your support and business since our opening last November! It has been a joy to work closely with Liza and it's been wonderful getting to know so many members of St. Helena's charming and close-knit community. Things were moving along quite well and we were looking forward to expanding our offerings with author events at the St. Helena Library...and then COVID-19 came along. Now, due to COVID-19 and all the complications that come along with it, we need to reassess our plan so we can stay open up-valley!
There is a way! Our needs are fairly modest and our main goal is for the store to be self-sustaining through this tough time. In order to help us do that, we're asking you to show your support by becoming a sustaining member of our community-supported bookstore. With your commitment we'll rest-assured that we can cover our expenses every month and remain a part of this community while COVID-19 keeps us reading at home and beyond! Please note: this membership is NOT a donation, it's a pre-paid monthly book budget. All money will be credited to your account and ready to use at your leisure.
To become a sustaining member of Main Street Bookmine, read the membership levels below and fill out the form for the level that best suits you. Charged on the first of every month, all membership funds will be credited to your Main Street Bookmine account to use towards purchasing books once paid.
PLEASE NOTE: the funds will not be deposited to your account until you have paid your invoice. Your in-store account is *not* automatically synced with our website payment, but if you shop online with us just add a note that you'd like to use your Main Street bucks in the comments of your order and we'll fix it on our end.
Purchases made over the course of the month will be deducted from your membership credit and funds can be used at any Bookmine location. Any funds leftover at the end of the year will be used to purchase books for St. Helena schools.
Membership levels and benefits include:
Casual Reader - $30 per month (We will add your name to our Wall of Famous St. Helena Readers!)
Avid Reader - $50 per month (We will add your name to the Wall of Famous St. Helena Readers AND you get a mug!)

Your membership is a commitment through the end of 2020. We will send you a Square invoice every month, June through December. If you'd prefer, you can pay up front for 7 months of your preferred level.
Your contributions will help us see COVID-19 through to the other side! Thank you in advance for your help and commitment to shopping local!
