Welcome to Volume One Books Online
Monday - Saturday 9:30-5:30
Your favourite independent bookstore celebrates over 40 years in the Cowichan Valley!
Volume One opened its doors in 1972 and has been a focal point of downtown Duncan ever since. Under the ownership of Garry MacGregor and Janice Hayward, our bookstore offers a wide selection of new and bargain books as well as an extensive children's section. We love to unite the right book with the right person so feel free to ask our knowledgeable staff for assistance.
For forty years, our customers have been making this store possible but more than this, you have actually created the store. We thank all of our wonderful customers for shopping locally and for choosing to let us be a part of your lives.
You can shop online AND shop locally at the same time.
You can search, reserve and order books from our website at your convenience. Just log in and start up your account. Your books will be set aside at our bookstore ready for you the next time you're downtown. It's easy and you don't have to pay until you pick up your books.
"A good book is an event in my life." (Stendhal, The Red and the Black)
