This is the quintessential small-town small book store. There are no shortage of best-selling books and authors. Please be respectful of the cat.

Quite simply, this is one of my favorite bookstores. They have a wide assortment of books from local guide books; an excellent science, fiction, cookbook, and children's section; and assortment of stationery and cards. During the holidays, the store arranges for "book angels" so you can select a book to donate to young children and teenagers. So worthwhile. You can... More

The best part of the shop was the staff.... More
