Story Time!

If you havent made it out to Story Time, yet, you’re really missing out on a lot of fun!

Miss Myra reads a few stories to start us out, and then everybody gets a snack (my favorite part).

We’ve had Sidewalk Chalk days, and I think she’s got a few other things up her sleeve as well.

Come on out and join us on Tuesday mornings at 10:30, and be ready to have some fun!

The Summer Reading Program is under way!

Our Summer Reading Program is officially under way!

Not a contest, not a challenge, just a program designed to foster a love of daily reading, with the option of recruiting sponsors to earn money for new books!

Read for at least 20 minutes a day, five days a week for six weeks, then bring in your completed progress sheet anytime before the beginning of school- that’s nine weeks from today, folks- and collect some goodies!

Open to everybody aged 1 day to 17 years, 364 days…

Program paperwork available at the store, or drop me a message or email, and I’ll get one out to you.

New Photography books

We got a couple interesting new photography books in today.

One is from internationally renowned photographer Sally Mann, whose startlingly authentic imagery of her children in Immediate Family introduced her to fame and controversy.

The other is… just silly, but fun.

Operating Hours

We’ve changed our store hours to be closed on Sundays.

In an emergency, please call the store phone, and if we’re able, we’ll do the best that we can to assist.

Additionally, we will be opening for limited hours on select Sundays, either for holidays or to serve those customers who don’t have any other time to shop with us. We’ll keep those dates published on this page and on our Facebook page, so keep an eye out for those.

Thank you for your understanding and support.
