We are Here for You!
UPDATE: Williamson County has designated Patchouli Joe's Books & Indulgences an Essential Business. This designation is based on the fact that we offer materials for home-schooling.
While we are excited about this opportunity to continue to serve Leander, we are proceeding with an abundance of caution.
What this means for you is that we are again able to offer no-touch curbside pickup service for in-store items. This is being offered in addition to direct-to-home delivery on orders (delivery is free for items over $35) and Patchouli Joe's Porch home delivery for items in the store. (Full details on each of these are provided below).
To limit exposure, curbside service will only be offered on Tuesdays, Friday, and Saturdays from 4-6pm. While it's not a return to our old normal, it does provide the chance to visit Old Town Leander (from the safety of your car) to pick up essential home-school materials, as well as other books and indulgences from Patchouli Joe's.
We appreciate your patience and support as we all navigate these challenging times.

Other Things You Should Know:
- Phone calls and voicemail are not an effective way to reach our staff at present, because we’re not physically in the store.
- In the meantime, our staff will be spending their time reading and reviewing books, and sprucing up our website to make the online experience smoother for you.
- Check out our Patchouli Joe’s Books and Indulgences YouTube channel!
- Follow us on social media for updates and specials.
Like most small, locally-owned businesses, we are fighting hard to battle through this uncertain time. We have added a “Donate to support your local bookstore” button at the lower right of this main page. Please know that any donations will go directly to keeping the Patchouli Joe’s staff employed during the lockdown and to cover expenses like rent so that we have doors to open once we get the “all clear” signal from Williamson County.
Mostly we want to thank all of you for the support you all have shown during this crisis. We hope we can help bring a little comfort and appreciate your patience and cooperation in these difficult times.
And don’t forget: Even in quarantine, you can still Expand your Mind and Indulge your Senses!
Peace & Love,
Team Patchouli Joe’s
