Happy Mother’s Day to all our customers who are moms! If you still need a last-minute present for that Awesome Mom in your life, check our shelves to see if Mom’s new favorite read is hiding here! Or, get her a gift certificate so she can find her own favorite.

We’re also still ordering books for summer reading. Teachers and educators, please send your summer reading lists to so we can make sure we have all the books our students need.
