Ruth Bader Ginsburg

my own wordsIn honor of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, we are featuring a selection of books - for all ages - about her fascinating life.

"Reading is the key that opens doors to many good things in life. Reading shaped my dreams, and more reading helped me make my dreams come true."

In the meantime, we invite you to peruse our selection of items that cannot easily be listed on our website in the Porch Pop-up Shop: notecards and gift wrap, puzzles and games, along with fun, new facemasks.

Weather permitting, of course...

Virtual Browsing!

NB new roomWe get it - you miss browsing. And we miss you! But even as we gradually open (see details below), some of you may be more comfortable browsing from home.

So we created a new Virtual Browsing page here on our website that includes twenty books you would discover if you were here in person highlighting new and notable fiction and non-fiction; hardcover and paperback. 

And be sure to visit the Staff Picks page.

Special Note

Big news! We are slowly, carefully opening for browsing - by appointment only - beginning October 1st. We have cleaned and rearranged the store and have set up an online calendar for scheduling.

We are not handling cash at this time so, if you wish to purchase anything, please come prepared with a credit card or check. (It is important that you follow VT and NH travel guidelines and stay home if you feel unwell.)

If you are interested, please go to this CALENDAR LINK and choose a date and time. Those of you without access to the internet may call the store and we'll schedule a time.

And we truly understand if you don't feel comfortable yet visiting in person.... Ordering by phone, email, and via our website for pick up from the porch is still encouraged!

Because of the pandemic's effect across all aspects of our business, it takes longer to receive, process, and ship books than it used to. If you have a "cancel by" date, please let us know when you place your order.
