Opinion: Yes, The Bookshelf is still open in Truckee

The Bookshelf store in Truckee is still here. I think many of you thought we closed this winter, as I have had people stop in who have told us they are happy they found us open; and the checker at Safeway was sure we were closed.

We are still for sale, hoping for a buyer, but I will retire at the end of September in any case. So your gift cards are still good, even if they have a tag with an expiration date of 1/31/16.

They are good as long as we are open as the Bookshelf. So please come in and use them up. A great selection of summer reading for children and adults awaits you here. And we are happy to special order books if we don’t have them.

You can meet local authors at our booth at Truckee Thursdays, so please check our website at bookshelfstores.com or our Facebook page for details. Please support your local bookstore this summer. Don’t send your dollars out of Truckee. Our employees thank you.

We would also like to thank the TTUSD School Librarians for their excellent support over the past winter/spring, as well as the many local teachers who spent their grant monies here.

Those dollars helped keep us in business. And many thanks to our regular customers who have continued to shop at Bookshelf.

And lastly, absent a buyer, we can try to set up a co-op. I do have several names of interested people and will be doing an email shortly to see if there is enough interest. So let me know if you might want to help with a co-op by emailing bookshelf.truckee@yahoo.com or calling 530-582-0515.

I thank you in advance for your continued support of Bookshelf. You have kept your dollars in the local community, contributing jobs and embracing a unique local business.
