COVID-19 UPDATES (updated regularly)

The spread of COVID-19 is rapidly changing the way the world operates, and we want to share with you how Blue Heron Books is responding.  

We have made many adjustments so we can serve you while mitigating risks to our customers and staff during this time.

We are taking proactive steps. We have increased our cleaning frequency of high contact touchpoints in the store. We are consistently checking and complying with the regulations set out by the Government of Canada.  

Our store hours are currently:

Monday-Friday: 10-6:00 Saturday: 10-5:00 Sunday:  11-4:00


Your health, our health, and the health of our community is always our top priority. We also recognize that we offer the very items – books, puzzles, games and arts & craft materials– that you need to make your home an inviting home base while so many other “go-to” places are closed.


We opened to the public on Monday, May 25, 2020, with many safety protocols in place.  You can be assured that all of your books are clean and have only been touched by sanitized hands!

As of Friday, July 10, 2020 all customers entering the store must wear a mask.  This is as per instructions from Durham Region Health:


We continue to encourage customers to shop online. If you are looking for recommendations give us a call and we would be happy to do a virtual walkthrough of the store. We will also be offering curbside pickup as well as delivering locally, for free, to families who are in quarantine due to illness, vulnerability or recent travel. To place an order with us visit our website at or give us a call. We will work with you to help you find what you’re looking for and make sure it gets to you safely.


In addition to using the webstore, we are taking orders by phone 905-852-4282, or by email

You can also support us during this time by purchasing gift certificates (which can be ordered online or by phone) for your future book needs. Order

Big thanks to all our customers for your ongoing support via orders coming into the store the past few months. We hope this time at home affords you the opportunity to sink your teeth into a gripping series or tackle  Wolf Hall or re-visit some of your childhood faves.  Who wouldn't feel reassured by Winnie-the-Pooh?



We apologize for the inconvenience or delays any of these measures might cause! The health and safety of our customers and staff is first and foremost our main concern, and always will be.
