We've Expanded

Come see our new, amazing space. We've added nearly 800 square feet of additional retail including a Children's Room, Middle Grade & Young Adult Room, and Reading Room. Our new garden patio features an outdoor lounge with fire pit, community table and sidewalk seating. We now have more space, indoors and out, to host your parties, meetings, and book clubs.
