Events Buzz Monday: Sun and Solar Eclipses, Space Travel, and Spellcasting!

The warmth of the last week has morphed into an excellent time to pack a bag of books and head to the beach, to the mountains or to the porch swing.  Here at our little bookstore that’s bigger on the inside, we’re ready to provide for the need for your reading, whether for pleasure or for school.

July is here, and that means a few changes in our regular hours.  We will be open on Thursday, July 4th from 10AM to 5PM. In addition, starting on July 7th, our Sunday hours will be extended until 7PM.

A new month means a new theme.  In honor of the fiftieth anniversary of the US manned moon landing, we have restocked our already wide assortment of astronomy and physics books for readers of all ages.
