Our Friend's Book Store Has More Than Books!

coffee

Coffee Anyone?

Not only can you find great prices on gently used books in our beautiful Friend's Book Store. Now you can enjoy browsing with a cup of coffee as well. Thanks to a generous donation from a former Board member in memory of her husband, the Friends recently added a Keurig coffee machine, and that makes the Book Store even more fun to visit. At the going rate, you can buy a cup and still have money left over for books. Stop in and check it out!
