"I love the 2nd Hand Prose Bookstore for gently used books, both hardbound and paperback, all very reasonably priced! They also have several very nice items for purchase, such as a great sturdy shopping bag, nice brass commemorative bookmark,, a large poster of the library, coffee mug and a wonderful laser-etched brick that actually came from the library during renovations. Even my children love to shop there for inexpensive fun books to read as well as for Birthday, Christmas or other special occasion gifting ideas "
