On Saturday, November 9, 2019, Charis Books and More turns 45 years old! It's a special day and we would love for you to celebrate with us with an all day party and sale. Join us from 10am to 7pm at 184 S. Candler St., Decatur, GA for cake, stories, and so much more. Everything in store is 10% off and if you spend more than $45 in the bookstore or become a monthly cornerstone donor to Charis Circle, our non-profit, you get a free Charis Books and More totebag. If you haven't been to our new location yet, it's a great time to "come home to Charis!"

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.
