To our wonderful customers: 

We have been mandated by the governor to close our doors and cease operations by noon on Tuesday, March  24, until further notice.  We are not allowed to be on the premises, and cannot conduct any business after that time. We are accepting orders only through the website, not by phone or e-mail, at this time.  Orders will be shipped; they will not  come to the store, so you will not be able to pick them up.

Once the governor's order is lifted, we are prepared  to be operational again.

We want to thank you for all the understanding, support and encouragement you have shown us during this extraordinary time.  We will be there for you as soon as we can. as you have been there for us.

We're dedicated to good books, personal service and community involvement. Through the search bar above you can go beyond books we have in stock to tap into a wider universe of some 2.4 million titles. Order through our site, pick up your books at the store or have them shipped directly to you or to someone else. Enjoy the site or come visit us in the store, where our knowledgeable staff will be happy to help you.

We believe that reading enriches life, so we provide a high-quality selection of books on a wide variety of subjects;

We believe in personalized customer service, so we go the extra mile whenever we can;

And we believe there is a strong, mutually beneficial bond between independent bookstores and the communities they love and serve.
