Starting dec. 8th, our full time hours are:
As of January 1st, 2016, our borough of Queens has been left with ONE bookstore.
Our mission was to change that and with your help we have! On April 23 of 2016, we launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds towards our objective. Thanks to our community, we reached that goal and from that point on we searched tirelessly for a storefront.
On May 11th, we received the keys to our new home. We are so excited to join the Kew Gardens community, and they have been SO supportive from the start, along with the rest of Queens. As of Oct. 7th, we have opened our doors!
