Three Mystic, CT locals bought this twenty-year-old store three years ago without knowing anything about the book business.  Within six months they realized their new venture would be a labor of love.  Quick studies, they are now spearheading local initiatives in the Mystic business community.

Half way between New York City and Boston, and right off the highway, this store caters to local townies and tourists passing through.  Autumn is busy with leaf-peepers arriving by the busload.  

As a store they have begun working with schools and libraries to host events for fundraisers and their events are growing.P1000719

Those events are becoming such a large part of the store’s plan, that the owners are going to begin Tuesday community education lectures focused on topics of interest for their communities. 

The town will offer bikes for rental and Bank Square has agreed to be one of the drop-off points.  One more reason to stop by the store.
