  Storytellers Events       

We proudly announce our guest artist for the month of July,          beginning with Art After Hours on July 11th.                                         Tammy Kaufman 

Tammy Kaufman's pastel paintings, described as "the softer side of North Carolina" will grace the front wall of the bookstore. Please join us for an opening reception on July 11th, Friday from 5-9PM.

Her artwork reflects her love of the outdoors, offering an expansive and intimate view of the local landscape. She takes inspiration from nature, and can be found painting outside -- "en plein air" -- at local parks and greenways, frequently accompanied by her husband Steve, an accomplished photographer, along with their rescue dog, Frylie.

Saturday ALL DAY Parents Read to Children

EVERY Saturday at 10:30am

We are changing the nature of our Saturday morning storytime. Our attendees have turned out to be very young children who actually need to be in a lap, most appropriately the lap of mom or dad. Although we occasionally will have guest readers and storytellers for any older children, we believe this will work best as a time for parents to come and read to or read with their children.

So each Saturday we will set aside some recommended readings for parents to explore with children and if you like what you see here's a deal, 20% off your first purchase and 10% off any other selection you buy from us.

We have a fine selection of books for all ages and we are getting ready to stock the shelves with new books. Come see what we have!
