Update on Phase 2 re-opening- 

I want to thank everyone for their patience during our closure and during our curbside service. Plumas County has been approved to open all Phase 2 businesses as of tomorrow.

This opening is contingent on customers maintaining proper social distancing, wearing face masks, and not entering the shop if they have been sick. We also will have a reduced number of people allowed in the business at one time. For our store size, we can have 11 people in the store at a time. We will provide hand sanitizer and markings on the floor to help customers maintain a safe distance.

We are almost ready to resume our regular business hours, but need to get our staff scheduled and ready to go. Unfortunately we no longer have enough people working to be open on Mondays.

So hold tight just a few more days. 

Curbside hours for Thursday 5/14 through Saturday 5/16 are 10am to 1pm.

We are still available for online shopping at Our direct to home shipping has slowed down considerably, but we are still offering direct to home shipping if you choose (it is taking about 7-10 days). I am offering shipping for only $2 plus $0.60 each additonal book.

If you have any questions at all please don't hesitate to call! I thank you all for all your support. I value each and every one of you. We will make it through this together.
