March 2020
Dear Friends,

While we remain cautious and concerned about the virus, we can't help but marvel at the outpouring of compassion we've observed over the last few weeks. We've seen schools scrambling to provide meals for hungry children, neighbors volunteering to grocery shop and run errands for the homebound, gift cards purchased from favorite local businesses, GoFundMe accounts set up for unemployed restaurant workers, and homes opened to stranded college students. Keep it up. Keep helping one another. Keep up the kindness.

As an independently-owned small business we also feel the pinch, and as sales have declined, we are doing our best to stay open, keep our employees working and the cats cared for. We're aware that money is likely tight for many of you as well, so b eginning today, and for as long as we are able, all books (excluding those consignment) and Gift Cards will be 20% off. This is good for online or in-store purchases. We've recently added several gift card options on our website - type "Gift Card" in the search box - but feel free to contact us directly by phone.

Stay tuned for updates Facebook , Instagram and Twitter from us as the days unfold. Remember: we're all connected. No virus can ever really keep us apart.

Be well and keep up the kindness!

Love Bob, Jan, George, Mallory, Megan
and our Feline family

At present, we continue to remain open, although we are reevaluating daily and will provide updates if anything changes. W e are maintaining most of our regular hours and taking extra precaution with vigilant in-store cleaning and sanitation. The size of the store, and the scarcity of customers lends itself to the practice social distancing, but by no means can we guarantee a virus free environment. We will do our part to continue to create a safe and healthy environment, but always use your own judgment and put your health and that of your family first. We will do the same .

** We are also offering curb side pickup. Just call ahead and tell us the book(s) you want and we'll deliver your purchase to you as you wait in your car. A little fresh air will help us all!**
