The final chapter... For over 5-1/2 years Jacobsen's Books has served the community of Hillsboro with new and used books, supported local authors and hosted events.  

It is with great regret that I have to announce that Jacobsen’s Books will be unable to stay open and will be closing the doors in February.  

Thank you to all who have supported me, shopped here, promoted the store and become my friends.  I truly appreciate you, without such great community support we could not have been here for this long.
I hate to be another bookstore that didn't make it, but I look back at all that we have achieved and I am proud of what was accomplished:

Events like Find Waldo- 3 years
Santa Claus - 2 years
Summer Reading Program- 3 years
Too many author events to name..
Carried over 100 local author books
Supported authors during the Farmer's Market
Offered discounts to schools and teachers
Donationed to many schools and other organizations- over $1500 worth of books alone in 2015

It is a difficult business.  I have a very loyal following but I also hear nearly every day people who say “I’ll just buy it online.”  Please support, or continue to support your local bookstores, really all local small retail businesses!   

Please come by and shop! Everything is on sale, with progressive discounts, everything must go!

We will no longer be taking books on trade and trade credit cannot be combined with discounts.

If you have gift certificates please use them as soon as possible.  We will still be taking special orders during most of this time, so if we don't have what you want we can order it.
