"Tis the season for giving!
The Holiday Season is here and we are off to a great start! Our shelves are stocked with the latest hot titles, and many stocking stuffers as well. Calendars and journals are moving briskly, along with the latest bestsellers, so shopping early is best. 

We are open for browsing each day from 10 am - 6 pm, in compliance with Covid 19 regulations. (The best shopping times to beat the crowds are mid-week mornings.) Beginning December 14, we will extend our hours to 8 pm (closing at 6 pm Sunday 12/20), and closing at 4 pm on Christmas Eve. Best of all, booksellers are on hand and ready to recommend gifts for everyone on your list. Online shopping is encouraged, and we have increased staff to keep up with your online requests. Gift-wrapping, curbside pick-up and shipping are helpful options.

Due to Covid restrictions we are not hosting our Annual Holiday Open House this year. Instead we are offering two Cyber Mondays this month, along with our Annual Gift Certificate sale. Our Holiday Giving Tree to benefit Helpline House is also in full swing. Details are included below.

It has been a challenging year, but there is much to celebrate as well. We have enjoyed the privilege of serving you for 50 years - and counting! It is humbling how you have carried us through some very difficult days. If 2020 has taught us anything, it is that a strong community can weather any storm and come out better than before. We're committed to doing our part to keep this community vibrant. We look forward to seeing you soon.

The gift of giving...
We are hosting our Annual Helpline Giving Tree, in support of Helpline's Holiday Program. This year, Helpline House is requesting $25 gift certificates as donations to local families in need. Through December 15 we collect these gift certificates for distribution by Helpline House. Another way to participate is to donate your earned frequent buyer points to Helpline House, and we will convert these to gift certificates.
