Welcome to Basically Books

Independent Hilo Bookstore since 1985

It has been over a year since Basically Books moved from Downtown Hilo to a bright new location near Banyan Drive.

After more than 30 years in Downtown we’re happy in our new home, thanks in large part to all of our loyal customers who followed us across town, and to those of you who have found us since.

It’s been a year of growth, and change, and now we’re updating our website as well.

We ask you to be patient with us as we make these changes.
For any questions, please contact us at bbinfo@hawaiiantel.net or by phone at (808) 961-0144.

Basically Books is still partnered with Petroglyph Press, and the fax, copy, and scanning services that you’ve always enjoyed have been integrated into Basically Books. If you’ve been affected by the volcanic activity in Pahoa you can come and get free fax and email service for your insurance claims.

Visit Petroglyph Press’ website for more information on commercial printing and publishing.
