Welcome to Four-Eyed Frog Books!

A Community-Owned Bookstore

Four-Eyed Frog Books is a community-owned, independent bookstore located in the quaint Mendocino County coastal town of Gualala, in northern California. The Frog, as it’s affectionately referred to, is owned by nearly two dozen community shareholders, who jointly purchased their beloved bookstore in 2016 when the original owner moved out of the area.

We made the news on our anniversary! Click here to read the story of the first year in the life of our community owned bookstore, as reported by S.J. Black in the Independent Coast Observer, Volume 49, Number 14, July 7, 2017.

Independent Bookstores Cultivate Community


When you shop at a local independently (Indie) owned business, your entire community benefits:
 - Local retailers are your friends and neighbors—support them and they’ll support you.
 - Spend $100 at a local-owned business and $68 of that stays in your community. 
 - More of your taxes are reinvested in your community--where they belong.
 

Did you know you can search our stock online and order print books, audio books, and e-books through our website? Your support helps to ensure the survival of a community owned independent bookstore.

Upcoming Events at the Frog

Sunday, March 3rd - 4:00pm Jane Kim & Thayer Walker Introduce The Wall of Birds

A celebration of the diversity and evolution of birds, as depicted in the Cornell Lab of Ornithology's magnificent 2,500-square-foot Wall of Birds mural by artist Jane Kim.

Part homage, part artistic and sociological journey, The Wall of Birds tells the story of birds' remarkable 375-million-year evolution. With a foreword by John W. Fitzpatrick, director of the Cornell Lab of Ornithology, and full of lush photographs of gorgeous life-size birds painted in exacting detail, The Wall of Birds lets readers explore these amazing creatures family by family and continent by continent. The Wall of Birds is a visual feast, essential for bird enthusiasts, naturalists, and art lovers alike.

This event is hosted by Four Eyed Frog Books and will be held in the Action Network conference room (above Physical Gym in Cypress Village).
