Labor Day, September 6, 2021

We'll be closed for the Labor Day holiday on Monday September 6.

Please visit us when we re-open on Tuesday morning at 10 am!

Thanks for shopping locally (:



Our booksellers and owners are now fully vaccinated!

  • We're not worried about capacity; a full bookstore is a good thing, but we rarely meet any dangerous numbers.
  • Unfortunately, we will all wear masks in the store again whenever possible.
  • Customers are encouraged to use hand sanitizer upon entering the store.
  • We do ask that you keep social distancing in mind when interacting with the staff and other customers.
