If you need to pick up some literature on the local history try this small, two-story bookshop. A local treasure, this store has everything from history to an extensive children's section. Hosting author readings almost every evening, the store is a local favorite and offers everything from coffee to staff recommendations (at 20% off). This constantly expanding mom and pop shop has grown in size over the years most recently expanding their children and travel departments.
