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.
