Happy May Day!

We’re stretching into the last few months of the school year. We send our good luck wishes to all of our students preparing for their tests and graduation!

For those of you already planning for next school year or for summer reading, we’ve made a special Seasonal Sale Cart of just literature and classics so those of you looking to get a jump start on Summer Reading can do so. If anyone has Summer Reading lists from schools, please bring them to the store so we can stock up. Summer Reading books fly off the shelves here, so take advantage of the perennial favorites on our sale cart and let us know what you need as early as possible.

We have a bunch of events, particularly for our artistic friends and crafty kids, this month on the calendar for you!
