Events Buzz Monday: Putting Away The Leaf Rakes, Taking Out The Snow Shovels!

Otherwise known as the norm for the first week of December, here at our little bookstore that’s bigger on the inside.

We hope those who had to travel or had relatives traveling during the Thanksgiving holiday weekend have arrived at their destinations safely.

Our sincere appreciation goes out to all those who made our #SmallBusinessSaturday/#ShopLocal events this past weekend so enjoyable.  Thanks to authors James C. MacIntosh, Leigh Perry, and Rory O’Brien for sharing their mystery and suspense titles with our audience, and thanks to our customers from near and far who support Worcester’s independently owned full service bookstore.

Now that December is here and the gift-shopping season is in full swing, a reminder about our holiday hours.  Barring winter storms that necessitate late openings and early closings, from now through Monday, December 23rd we will be open on Sundays from 9AM to 7PM, and on Mondays through Saturdays from 9AM to 9PM.

Don’t forget that we can mail your gift purchases to friends and loved ones! The last day for guaranteed postal holiday delivery via USPS Media Mail is Thursday, December 12th; the last day for guaranteed postal holiday delivery via USPS Priority Mail for packages and USPS First Class Mail for gift certificates is Monday, December 16th.

Here’s our schedule for upcoming events… 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
