Just letting everyone know we have not received any info on getting to reopen our bookstore, we will let you know just as soon as we receive approval. Given the current increase in cases and reinstaltion of some restrictions I’m not anticipating confirmation any time soon. Our volunteers are all anxiously awaiting the ability to come back.

Still no update on when we will get to open, we are anxious to see all our customers and help you find something wonderful to read. Will update as soon as we get the ok.

Hi neighbors and friends. Just wanted to update everyone and let you know as of today we do not have a timeframe for when the bookstore can reopen. Fingers crossed it won’t be to much longer.

03/16/2020

Please do not drop off donations at the bookstore, we are closed and there’s no one picking up donations. You know books and moisture are not compatible, donations left will end up in the trash and none of us want that so hang onto your donation until we are up and running.

Thank you
