On Friday, June 30, 2017, the Algoma Library Friends will celebrate the grand opening of a new used bookstore, The Book Corner. Community members are invited to attend the Algoma Area Chamber of Commerce ribbon cutting at 11 a.m.as well as the store’s grand opening celebration from 11-3.
The bookstore is suitably named The Book Corner since it is located on the corner of Third and State streets (401 Third St.) in downtown Algoma. Regular hours for the Book Corner are 11 a.m.-3 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Sunday.
Completely volunteer run, all funds raised by the bookstore will provide support to the Algoma Public Library and the many programs it offers, including new computers, printers, scholarships, furniture and community events. The store will also provide year-round access to used bookstore for the public.
The Friends group is seeking assistance to help staff the store once open. If interested, a sign-up sheet is located at the Algoma Public Library. For further information or questions, please contact Pat Cichon at 920-487-3323 or Sue Hass at 920-495-8440.
