May Day is right around the corner, the start of another exciting month here at the little bookstore that’s bigger on the inside.
The parking lot upgrades are still in progress, with plans for better lighting and smoother entries and exits, as well as the relined and repaved surface. Rainy weather has been a hindrance to completing the work, but cars are for now permitted to park to shop at the 65 James Street Plaza.
We will be resuming our normal events scheduling in the interim, and we deeply appreciate your support, your understanding, and your patronage during this lengthy process.
As a reminder, the majority of our events here at ABSW are free and open to the public. Check out our page on SocialWeb.net!
