A note about our store closure...

We closed our bookstore yesterday to the public, indefinitely. At first, it was a very difficult decision. Then, it suddenly became easy: We have heard of people getting sick around town, I have a six week old and a 21 month old and two older parents (sorry for calling you "older," Mom&Dad), and the decision became easy. As a community space where many people congregate, given so many more public places were closing, we did not feel comfortable potentially contributing to the spread of this virus.
