Introducing Green Apple Books on the Park

We are excited to announce that Green Apple Books has expanded! On August 1, 2014, we opened a new store on 9th Avenue in the Inner Sunset, a major thoroughfare nearby Golden Gate Park.
Since then, we've hosted dozens of writers and musicians, including Karl Ove Knausgaard, Angel Olsen, Lauren Groff, Patti Smith (all pictured above), and more. If you haven't stopped by yet, pay us a visit.

Wait!? Are you closing the 506 Clement location?

No way! In defiance of anyone who says print is dead, we now have two locations, each with its own personality and focus.

Where is Books on the Park located?

1231 9th Ave. in the Inner Sunset, in the building formerly occupied by Le Video. [MAP] The phone number is 415-742-5833.

Are you partnering with Le Video?

When we moved into the space, Le Video relocated to the second floor and we shared the building, hoping that our cohabitation would prove valuable to both businesses. Unfortunately, due to decreasing rentals, Le Video went out of business at the end of 2015. Their legendary collection was sold to the Alamo Drafthouse (2550 Mission St), where it is now available for rent.

What are the hours? 

We're open 10am-10pm, seven days a week.  

Do you buy used books? 

No. We are only buying used books at our Clement St. location. Details here.

What kind of bookstore is Green Apple Books on the Park?

Much like Green Apple at 506 Clement, Books on the Park is a generalist bookstore with new and used books.  We'll emphasize children's books, fiction, cookbooks, and new releases. Think less dust, more breathing room, and plenty of fine books.

Do you hold events at the new store?

YES. As anyone who’s been to 506 Clement knows, space is at a premium. Books on the Park is roomy in order to host in-store events. We also partner with neighborhood business for out of store events.
