We carry a great selection of titles including large sections of children's books, general fiction, sci-fi, mystery and thrillers, religion & metaphysics, cooking, history and biography. We have a selection of antiquarian titles and fine bindings. We also carry board games and puzzles (both new and used), toys, buttons, magnets, small gifts, note cards and each year, a large selection of calendars.
 
We also offer free gift wrapping, customer requests and special orders. We can also provide dust jacket covering for any of our books. We buy and trade books whenever the store is open. We have regular events all year long, including author signings and book releases, events for younger children and family game nights.
