Eureka Books

Brave New Bookseller Wanted!

August 16th, 2018  |  by  |  published in Bookselling, Bookstore, Eureka Books, Feature 2

Now Hiring!

Eureka Books is looking for a New Book Maven to manage our ever-growing new merchandise division. While we may be best-known for our used and rare offerings, Eureka Books also stocks thousands of new titles as well as greeting cards, pens, journals, and even coffee mugs.

We are looking for a booklover who, with training, can manage our new books and merchandise offerings, selecting books and cool gifts, ordering from publishers and suppliers, and putting it all into clever, eye-catching displays.

Bookstore experience is preferred; solid retail experience is a must. The confidence to pick books and merch that will appeal to Humboldt’s unique sensibility is required, as is the humility to recognize missteps and adapt accordingly.

This position is full-time (40 hours per week) and requires weekend availability. Salary is $14-15/hour, DOE, with health benefits, two-weeks paid vacation, a cell phone allowance, and a generous store discount.

Please submit a paper resume and cover letter to apply (electronic submissions are not accepted – we’re a bookstore, we like paper!).

Obi Kaufmann for May Arts Alive

March 4th, 2018  |  by  |  published in Arts Alive, Eureka Books, Events

Eureka Books is excited to announce that we will be hosting bestselling author and artist Obi Kaufmann for a book signing at Arts Alive on May 5th from 6pm to 9pm.

If you love California, you need this book. Obi Kaufmann grew up in the San Francisco East Bay and has spent decades exploring the Golden State’s natural wonders with paintbrush in hand. Now he has gathered his art and understanding of nature’s cycles in a unique collection of science and art like nothing we’ve seen before. The California Field Atlas is part atlas and part field guide, but so much more than both of these. It’s an art book and a exploration of our natural past and possible futures. Come meet Obi and see for yourself why this book sold out before Christmas and is destined to become a classic!

This is an excellent article from the San Francisco Chronicle found on Obi Kaufmann’s website:

Everyone Gets A Books This Year!

November 20th, 2017  |  by  |  published in Bookstore, Eureka Books, Humboldt County

To all our friends in Humboldt County,

For the last 30 years, Eureka Books has hand-picked our eclectic and interesting selection books to fit this one-of-a-kind community. We’re known as the “old-book” store, and we always have thousands of good used books and uncommon first editions.

But if you haven’t visited our beautiful Victorian storefront in Old Town in a while, you may not realize that Eureka Books has the largest selection of new books in town. We stock thousands of new titles, and if we don’t have what you are looking for, we can probably get it in a day or two.

This year, we’ve teamed up with other Northern California independent bookstores to offer you these gift ideas. There’s something for everyone on this list. But there’s no substitute for talking with a bookseller. This holiday season, we’re here for you, seven days a week, just as we have been since 1987.

Happy Holidays from all of us as Eureka Books,

Amy, Jack, Jen, Kaity, Katie, Mike, Russell, Scott, and Solomon
