Bookstores are so important, and specialty bookstores like this one, even more so. I haven't yet donated, but I almost certainly will... as soon as I find out the goal of the fundraising! Are you trying to buy your building? Or just cover expenses and pay debts - because book stores are not usually huge money-makers. (personal experience)
