Bookends Bookstore

We are asking for your Help!
In the 35 years since we opened, we have worked hard to be the bookstore we are today.  A lively bookstore, with top-notch events with the world's best authors. Over the years, we have proudly created jobs,  paid our fair share of taxes, given back to nonprofits and schools, and built a community.

But now we are faced with Covid-19 and the fact that we are closed to the public, we need your help to pay our rent, utilities, payroll, liabilities and publishers. 

We are asking for your immediate support.  The loans options the State and Federal government has offered, do not cover all expenses and it is not possible for us to carry a repayable loan given the uncertainly of the times.  So, like so many small business owners we are using this fundraising campaign as an additional effort to support the store. 

If you can give any amount, we are truly grateful. If not, there are other ways to support us by ordering books from us online.

Thank you for allowing us to be part of your lives. When we first opened this store, we imagined a lively bookstore, a store where one could meet some great authors, celebrate books and just be together!  
Help us to Keep it that way Again!

Be Safe!
The Bookends Family
