Saturday Plans

This coming Saturday, November 29th, we will host a memorial service for Michael Lennick from 2-6 pm.

The store will be open, but the basement will be off limits except for the Lennick family and friends. We know our wonderful customers will want to respect their privacy.

So if you were planning to look for used books this weekend (or Dr. Who, Star Wars, Star Trek, Warhammer, Forgotten Realms, Dragonlance, etc…) please consider dropping by before Saturday at noon. Or Sunday. Or Friday, for that matter. You know we’re always happy to see you.

Venue: Basement
