About

Welcome to Golden Fig's Patreon! The core of our lifelong commitment to the reading community is the art and craft of bookselling. Through thoughtful recommendations, curated shelves, and local community focus, we distinguish bookselling from the noise of algorithms and listicles. At Golden Fig, bookselling is how we care for our readers.

Why support Golden Fig Books through Patreon?
Subscriptions represent sustained, reliable income for the store. Every pledge through our Patreon provides us with vital breathing room to navigate the uncertainties of operating a small, local business. Each pledge tier helps us to focus on bookselling, and most importantly, on our valued relationships with readers and authors.

We are grateful to have many dedicated, loyal customers in the Triangle, where people are passionate about shopping local. It is our privilege to create a special space for the enjoyment of books in Durham!
