Roger & I want to share with you how amazing this past week has been with all its challenges!  Our limited team connected with  friends old and new (while practicing social distancing) through our curbside pick-ups.  We learned to do all our usual tasks while wearing black surgical gloves!  What brought tears to our eyes was hearing Thank You from so many of you for what we have done and are doing for our community.  The fact that you are thinking of us and offering help is truly Radical Kindness (which is still my favorite book from last year).  Many of you ordered books coming later this year or books sent to friends to help us with cash flow.

We have faced many challenges over 45 years, but this community has always been there for this little boat navigating the waves of a constantly shifting industry.  Because of our passion, we intend to stand fast in our commitment to the Legacy of Literacy and our belief in the extreme importance of reading.

Please stay tuned to for Updates to come.

Take good care of yourselves and your loved ones, and we will overcome this challenge together.

Vivien & Roger
