Welcome to Baker Books, your neighborhood bookstore (in cyberspace)!
2 McCabe St.
Dartmouth, MA 02747
Baker Books, the bricks and mortar version, is located in Dartmouth, a suburb of New Bedford on Buzzards Bay in the southeastern corner of Massachusetts. We are only 30 miles from Providence, 60 miles from Boston and a short ferry ride from Martha's Vineyard or Nantucket. We have approximately 5,000 square feet of retail space that we keep stocked with well over 25,000 titles of varying subjects, from children's picture books to "how-to" books on computers and cooking. Baker Books also has an in-store Bean & Leaf Café where you can enjoy a simple cup of coffee or a more elaborate espresso drink and a delicious pastry. We also use our café space to host a variety of book signings, author readings and children's events (check calendar for listings).
Of course, as a Buzzards Bay community-member, Baker Books takes great pride in our local history. Our Local Interest sections of the store are kept updated and fully-stocked. You can always find quality books on whaling, boat-building, Portuguese and Cape Verdean communities, and figures of local interest such as Herman Melville, Frederick Douglass, Joshua Slocum, and even Lizzie Borden. If you can't find it listed, just ask us via email.
As your purveyors of information and imagination, Baker Books offers the most complete special order system in the area. If a book is in print, we will make every effort to procure it for you. In addition, if a book has gone out-of-print, our sister-store, Remains To Be Seen (now located within Baker Books), would be happy to find you a used or remaindered copy.
Among our services, Baker Books offers free gift wrapping with every book ordered online, as well as special discounts for teachers, book groups, non-profit organizations and members of our Baker's Dozen Book Club. By the way, we regularly monitor our e-mail, so if you have any comments, questions, or suggestions, feel free to drop us a line.
