BookBar Turns 2!

Celebrate with us this First Friday!  BookBar is now 2 years old.  We are doing a Taste of BookBar to thank you for your business and friendship these past couple of years.  We couldn't have done it without the overwhelming enthusiasm and support from our community.

Enjoy samples from our menu and 20% off on select adult and children's book tiltes we've enjoyed reading and selling the most!
