Save Vroman's Bookstore

Vroman's Bookstore, having been founded in 1894, has always been part of our community, spanning three centuries and two millennia. It has brought joy and discoveries to generations of Pasadenans and Angelenos. Vroman's was there for me when I needed a book, or advice and recommendations on a topic as a student. It was there for me on rainy days when I needed to take my toddler to a dry welcoming place, letting me read to her for hours sitting on the big stuffed bear or on those little chairs she adored so much. It has brought us Story Hour with Mr Steve, free conferences with fascinating authors, and a place to look for that unique holiday or birthday gift for the friend who has everything. Vroman's is our heart and we need to keep it beating. It has survived the internet craze but the virus may ring its death knoll if we don't rise to save it.  It's our turn to help Vroman's. Please give as you can so we can keep The Bookstore for generations to come and at least another century.
