Book Club Corner


We have a lovely space for you to meet with your book club. Contact the store to see what time slots are available. We do not charge a fee but obviously would love it if you bought your book from us!


Tell us what you’ll be reading next and we’ll make sure we have copies stacked on our book club tables.  We offer a 10% discount to all book clubs that register with us and are always available to offer help choosing your next great read.

If you need more seating, simply unhook a chair from the wall!
