We know that people are concerned with the spread of COVID-19. We are keeping up-to-date with current health measures and safety protocols to ensure the health of our staff and customers and we are taking steps to ensure the continued health and safety of everyone in our store. 

These include:

  • Cleaning all books that we purchase from our customers.
  • Having a bottle of Purell handy for use by staff and customers.
  • Increased frequency in our cleaning and disinfecting protocols on high use surfaces such as the door, counter and debit machine.
  • We also have disposable gloves if people don’t want to touch the books, we can then re-clean the ones they want to purchase.

So nice to see Stormie, Trent and their newest son Colin.

Thanks Rick for coming to visit our store all the way from James Bay!

Rick was really pleased with the copy of A Distant Mirror: The Calamitous 14th Century that we had for him to purchase.

Thanks Henry Procyk for ordering a book from our web site.

It was great chatting with Henry, finding the book he wanted and mailing it to him in the Yukon.

Thanks Patrica for ordering a book from us via our web site.

Nic was so happy to see we are open, especially when she saw we had some Kelley Armstrong books!

Larissa and her dad came to get a couple of books and Larissa scored a few scrunchies as well!

Eden generously purchased a cooking book for another customer and purchased a couple of books for himself.


It was a pleasure to help David Friedman purchase a book on line via our web site for his daughter Amy.

Amy finished the book and told her dad she really enjoyed it. David shared with Amy our email exchanges leading to his purchase. She was shocked to learn that the book wasn’t brand new, it was in such excellent condition. David is glad she’s an avid reader, and has time these days to read.

Amy is off to go tree-planting in a few weeks, and he will miss her a lot. David says she is fabulous and he loves her to pieces!! Amy is their oldest of three kids, and she’s bright and talented… grade 10 piano, ARCT with violin, and she earned a BA in Behavioral Psychology from McGill, graduating last June. David is such a proud dad!

Thank you Bruce & Andrea Miller for donating some great books to our store.
