It’s hard to believe we’re already at the end of 2023. It’s been such a special year for Island Books: celebrating our 50th anniversary all year long and looking back at our history and the people who shaped our store into the landmark it continues to be. We’ve had Saturday morning story times with Nancy Stewart and another wonderful Independent Bookstore Day in April. A whole July full of Waldo seekers, plus the many fantastic authors we’ve hosted. Book fairs and book clubs, and so so many books read and then recommended. The 2024 Typewriter Fixation Calendar, created by Cindy with assistance from her intern, Anna, filled with delightful facts about several of the specimens from our collection. Our wonderful 50th anniversary party, attended by so many of our bookstore friends from near and far. Thank you to all of you loyal readers, who help make Island Books the special place it continues to be. We truly could not do what we do without you.
And now we’re in the end of December. The longest night is behind us, but there’s still time to find a cozy pair of socks, an Island Books hoodie or mug, or the perfect BOOK to give to your loved ones. We’ll be here right up until 4pm on December 24th, ready to do our best to help you!
Check out our holiday hours below and note we’re taking a little break over the New Year. Maybe we’ll make a dent in our own stacks of unread books?
Wishing you all the perfect read to see you through the New Year!
