Hours of Curbside Pick-up

Dear Friends,

We are so grateful for this community right now— those of you who’ve called to order books and gift cards, stopped in to shop with us, or given us a shout-out on social media have all helped to make this strange, difficult time a little easier. We’re doing okay. We’re concerned about our staff and their families, and we’re trying to make the right decisions. 
We’re also trying to get creative. There’s nothing we love so much as a challenge, and we believe books are part of how we can all make it through social distancing without become distant in our hearts and minds. 
Starting Thursday March 19, we’ll be open for curbside service only from 10am-5pm. Call us at 334-246-3003. We’ll get you what you need, offer recommendations if you’re not sure, ring you up and run your package to your car. We’ll have all you favorite coffee drinks for purchase as well. 
We have gift cards for future purchases. We encourage everyone to head over to for all your online book needs. You can create an account HERE and as of today, 30% of that sale comes right back to AOCB, and your books get shipped right to your door. 
Thank you for all the support. It means the world to us.
Big love,
Auburn Oil Co. Booksellers

Books are fuel.

Welcome to Auburn Oil Co. Booksellers, we’re an independent bookstore in Auburn, AL featuring a specially curated selection of books, cards, and gifts as well as custom-made drinks (complete with a coffee menu inspired by local authors). Our namesake pays homage to a family business from a time when a gas station was a filling station, a place where you knew each other, where someone came out to your car to fill up your tank, clean your windshield, and catch up a bit. At Auburn Oil Co Booksellers, you can know a friendly face, fill your brain and your belly, and maybe see a little better when you leave.
