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. You can also look forward to more author events and greatly expanded children's programming and story times. Don't forget to check out our new literary mural on the North side of our building, too!

Storytelling Event with Paul Barach

On Friday, May 27, comedian Paul Barach will be hosting a storytelling event at BookBar.  The evening's theme will be "Your Friends and Neighbors."   Paul invites anyone with a story to tell to email him a synopsis at paul.barach@gmail.com.  The story can be funny, sad, dramatic, or any way the teller wants to tell it, as long as the story is true.

As for those who wish to attend, the stories will begin at 7pm!  Come out to hear stories from people in your community, and enjoy a glass of wine or pint of beer with us!
