About the Store


Books on B, created by its community, and for its community, opened its doors September 30th, 2017.

Its owner, Renee Rettig, hails from Hayward’s beloved The Book Shop (1960-2017) and is proud to be part of the preservation and proliferation of independent bookstores.

Celebrating new, used, and rare reads, and delighting in special orders, placed daily, Books on B invites all readers to gather at its warm, welcoming hearth— bring your curiosity and compassion!
