Warner Bookstore - The place to be
As you know we've supported the Books For London campaign, that encourages commuters to swap their used books rather than bin them, but MainStreet Book Ends is a step further towards sustainability. The bookstore is only the second bookstore in the US to be fully powered by solar energy!
Katharyn Nevins (pictured) is the owner of this fantastic community store and a supporter of our magnetic adventures (MOAP).
The bookstore has an attached carriage house which has been converted into a gallery for artist to display and sell their work, along with a cafe, which screens movies, hosts book and poetry readings and houses the local farmers market twice a week. Katharyn is an advocate of buying local and supporting small businesses. The grounds around the bookstore are given over to the public with a patio for public gatherings and an amphitheater for concerts.
One day we'll hope to get out there and have an exhibition in the grounds of the Bookstore if Katharyn will accomodate our motley crew.
Thanks to MOAP director and CollectConnect artist Tom Hosmer for the photo and his tireless support.
