Charis and the Coronavirus

Charis is currently closed to the public for in store browsing. At this time we welcome and very much need your online orders and support so that we can continue to pay our staff and eventually re-open for business after the public health crisis has passed. 

Stock up on books! Place an online order at www.charisbooksandmore.com. We will ship your books so you don't have to leave the house. Not sure what to read? Our staff picks and reading lists are a great place to start. Our media mail shipping rate starts at $3!

Order a gift certificate for a friend or for yourself. When you order a gift card online, we will issue you a number which allows you to shop online. Please enter all of your information as requested in the form and we will send you a digital gift card number. Please indicate the email of the gift recipient. 

Finally, if you are able, consider donating $10 or more a month to become a Charis Circle Cornerstone donor, to help sustain the programming work of our non-profit, because our work won't stop even if events are temporarily suspended. Charis Circle's mission is to foster sustainable feminist communities, work for social justice, and encourage the expression of diverse and marginalized voices.

ACCESSIBILITY

Charis Books is a fully wheelchair accessible space with on site van accessible parking, two ramps, and additional overflow accessible parking nearby. Most of our shelves are on wheels and can be moved to provide additional access. Our bathrooms are wheelchair accessible and gender neutral with motion activated fixtures. Both bathrooms have wheelchair accessible baby changing tables. Our directional signs are written in braille. Our events are mic'd for sound. We caption videos when we show them in the space. Free ASL interpretation is available for most Charis Circle programs upon request. Please email info@chariscircle.org to request interpretation as early as possible. We have several different kinds of seating for events. If you need a wider or sturdier chair and don't immediately see one available, please let us know and we will help you find one that fits your body. The space has all LED lighting. The space is not scent or chemical free but we do our best to minimize the use of chemicals and scents throughout the space and use low VOC materials whenever possible. If you have specific questions about the space or how an event can be made more accessible to you, please do not hesitate to contact us at info@chariscircle.org.
