Become a Part of Open Books

ob grand opening.gifAlmost literally. Open Books's grand opening for the used bookstore and literacy center is just a few weeks away, but you can still get in on any of their numerous ways to become a part of their store. Dedicate a fireplace tile to a book or a person you love, buy a bookshelf in honor of a fabulous reader in your life, or make a donation by becoming an official Open Books member and get a load of goodies, including a nifty T-shirt and discounts on store merchandise. Then come to the store on November 21-22 for a rousing weekend of literary events to help celebrate the store's opening. Stay tuned for details on who and what will be going on that weekend.
