2017 Calendars are here!
While you're on the second floor for events or browsing, take some time to check out our Sale Books! When brand new books come out in paperback, the remaining hardcovers travel to the sale shelves, where they join other hardcovers (40% off), paperbacks (25%), and picture books (25%). With separate young adult and chapter book sections, along with fiction and nonfiction, it's the one part of the store where books are organized by color. A great place to look for gifts!
