Q. Are you part of the Library?
A. No, we’re an independent organization working our buns off (so to speak) to raise money to help support the Library–especially the excellent programs (Noontime Opera, Summer Reading, Crafty Times, Lego Hour, etc.) that the Library produces. Almost every penny we earn from selling donated books goes back to the Library.
Q. Are you on Yelp?
A. Why yes, yes we are… at least our Channing Way store is. If you’ve had a good bibliographic experience at either store, how about leaving a comment on Yelp? And we’re on Facebook too.
