Accessibility

COVID note: We are taking additional precautions to reduce the spread of COVID-19. The accessibility info of our space has changed. For example, we are using cleaners like bleach and isopropyl alcohol and asking folks to wash their hands when entering the store. We are also asking people to wear masks in the store and we have free masks available, but we also understand that some folks are not able to wear masks. Please see our reopening procedures for more information. We would also be happy to respond to feedback or answer questions over email to info@spartacusbooks.net.
