Shutdown
Sunday, May 30th – Tuesday, June 22nd (at least)

We have been working on a custom-designed system that integrates our point of sale with our customer book requests/preferences, and an inventory database.

We’ll be closed for a few weeks while we implement this GTC – Game Changing Technology.

We’re excited – with a dash of trepidation. We’ll be working on inputting our books into the new system. It’s unchartered territory for us, and we’re jumping right into the task. Hopefully, we’ll finish in late June and welcome you back to an even better bookstore.

In the meantime, you can shop for new books through our Bookshop page:

Thank you for your support, friends!
