Steve and I are in the store 10:00am-5:00pm Tuesday through Saturday (closed Sunday & Monday). With a mask and one-at-a-time, we are open to the public to pick up orders, enter the front touch-free area of the store to pick up and pay for a purchase and to ask for suggestions.   

The pick up bin is outside the door during bookstore hours.

We are processing online orders and returning phone messages thougout the day.  Any further updates will be on this website and our Facebook page.
