What's Happening
at Werner Books

Werner Books in Erie, PA is more than just your average bookstore. Reach out to us to schedule a book fair for the upcoming school year! To make sure that your schedule is met, we recommend that you let us know your ideal date and time. We look forward to hearing from you soon.


We're excited to announce that Pennsylvania going Code Yellow means we are able to reopen!

As of Friday, May 8th, we are resuming regular store hours.

For those of you who still are not comfortable going out in public, we are still offering our Shop Alone time slots from 9-9:30AM and 9:30-10AM most days. These slots are by appointment only and limited to one customer per time slot, so call to reserve your half-hour to shop by yourself!

Our reopening of course comes with some changes and precautions to keep our employees and customers safe! What can you expect when you come in?


*As per local guidelines, you are required to wear a mask for everyone's protection.
*We have a sanitizer station right when you walk in the door - please make use of it before and after you browse!
*Please respect social distancing and stay 6 feet apart. We've marked the floor near the checkout.
*We're doing our best to limit the store to 5 customers at a time.

*The Book Lovers Bus Trips are still cancelled and Book Clubs are also cancelled until further notice.

Thank you for helping us keep things safe and for shopping local!


It wouldn't be Summer without a book sale! 

Save the date - Beginning Sunday 6/14 at 1PM, we'll have social distancing-safe tables of books outside the store loaded with books. Through the week, the sale will run M-F 11AM-7PM, ending Saturday 6/20 with a bag day!
