Tavistock Books does not maintain set hours, however, if in town, we can generally found in residence, Tuesday through Saturday, with core hours of 10 am till 4 pm, though it is always best to call first, 510-814-0480, as we may be off buying books, or otherwise engaged elsewhere.  Visits outside these core hours may be arranged by appointment.
