Book a "Bookmobile Day"
for Your School, Workplace, Block, Organization, or Friends/Family!

Bookmobile Visits for Schools, Workplaces, Organizations, Neighborhoods, Blocks, or Private Residences


Is your neighborhood missing an independent bookstore? Are you aiming to inspire and bring joy to the lives of students, colleagues, employees, conference attendees, or neighbors - or just want a "shopping party" with your book-loving friends?


Let us bring the bookstore to you! Treat your crew to a special treat by booking a two-hour bookmobile visit from Blue Kettle Books. Our beautiful, traveling bookshop will pull into your location (parking lot, driveway, or...?) and open our doors for browsing & shopping. Your crew will love our selection of fresh, curated book titles for adults, young adults and kiddos - plus handcrafted gifts from the PNW and beyond.

*A refundable deposit and minimum purchase total apply.  To keep our traveling bookshop operation sustainable, and to take good care of our wonderful BKB staff, $850 minimum in on-site sales is required (or in pre-order sales, once our pre-order site is up and running).  Also, a $300 refundable deposit is required to book the bookmobile. This includes a two-hour bookmobile visit to locations within a 7-mile radius of BKB's Northgate-Seattle home base (98125). Beyond that area, a fuel surcharge will be applied based on distance (contact us for info). This $300 deposit is fully reimbursed if sales on-site meet or exceed $850. Thank you for understanding our need to keep this policy. Think of it this way: that means a group of 10 attendees needs to each spend $85 to hit our minimum. That equates to a couple of hardcover new books and maybe an art print or a set of lovely notecards, not to mention a boutique book browsing experience unlike any other! 

COMING SOON - Pre-Order Site and Catalog! 

We are working on an e-commerce site and printed catalog for pre-ordering. Stay tuned for updates.
