We are celebrating 40 years of independent bookselling in 2013!
Our mission is to serve readers and writers of all ages with a handpicked selection of great books, a schedule of engaging events, a variety of free community services, and an inspiring, comfortable place in which all are welcome.
We had the pleasure of Robert Wrigley and Kim Barnes' company on Small Business and Indies First Saturday, November 30, 2013. If they ever quit their day jobs they can sell books for us anytime!
Our store's shelves aren't big enough to hold every book in the world...so during the school year we special order books for our customers at least twice a week! In the majority of cases we can get books within 3 to 5 days, but to avoid disappointment it is always best to order a couple weeks before you need it. We require a deposit on special orders of 30% of the purchase price, payable when you place the special order. You are always encouraged to prepay the entire amount.
Sometimes a book will take a week or two to arrive, and if it is difficult to find, out of print, out of stock, self-published, or from a very small publisher, it might take several weeks. If the book is not available from our usual distributors, will will get the details of the book you want, do some research, and get back to you about the cost and estimated arrival date. Full prepayment will be required for special orders that we can not obtain from our usual distributors.
You can place special orders in person at the store, or use this website to special order your books. Thank you!
