Open for Business!

We hope to remain open as long as possible during this period of heightened coronavirus counter-measures. Books are still coming in and we are open to customers who wish to browse the shelves or who seek specific books. However, we recognize that some may be reluctant to come out to the store and for those who are within a reasonable proximity we offer free delivery. Please contact us by email anytime or by phone (during store hours). Our modified store hours are as above. The Fall catalogue (Oct to Dec 2020) is now mounted on the mystery catalogue page.
