April Announcements!

Looks like Mother Nature is pranking us big time, with the possibility of snow, in April. It's a good thing those early bulb flowers are hardy. But this just gives us a last chance to hunker down with a warm blanket, hot chocolate, and a cozy read to get us through the last bite of winter. But with spring coming it's the time to explore, too—maybe try something you don't usually read? Check out all our great new releases or our Staff Picks. Whether you like the classics, biography, horror or mystery, or a swoony romance, we're happy to help you. Come in and ask us for recommendations. We won't rest until we find that perfect read for you. And don't worry about how many books you have at home. If your To Be Read pile isn't big enough to crush you when it falls over, you're nowhere near the legal limit. Warm weather, we are ready for you!

Also, the Black Bear Cafe is open on Sundays again! Can you say "Spring! Rebirth! More caffeine!"? Sure you can. Warm weather, we are ready for you!

The book you want isn't in stock? Consider ordering it. Or buy a Gift Card (good for in-store or online purchases) or Online Giftcode (for online purchases only) instead! They make great presents and take the work and stress off of you to find the perfect pick.

Curbside pickup is still available for those who prefer not to come into the store. Quick and simple: Just place your order and when you're notified it's ready for pickup, dash in from our back parking lot, grab your bag from the boxes in the hallway, then dash back out. Or, if you prefer shipping, we offer free media mail shipping for orders of $100 or more.

Black Bear Cafe: The cafe is open every day now! Come enjoy a hot cup of coffee or tea and one of Gail Ann's delicious doughnuts!

Current Covid Policy: Please check this page for information and updates on our current Covid, RSV, and flu mitigation policies.

Thanks again for bringing so much joy into our store and cafe!
