Save our bookstore!   Leave a comment

The Bookshelf, located next to Wild Cherries in Truckee, is the last remaining full scale bookstore in the Truckee-North Tahoe region. It may disappear at the end of January unless a buyer for the store is found very soon.

Bookshelf owner Debbie Lane says that she had a buyer for the business, but unfortunately it recently fell through. She’s also looked into the concept of putting together a co-op, where a group of people own the store together, but the logistics of such an arrangement has not yet worked out. “It’s very rewarding and I hate to think that there will not be a book store in town. I think it’s important for the kids. We have had great support here,” said Lane. But Lane is ready to retire, her husband is ready to travel and she can’t handle the business by herself. She knows it is time for someone else to take over the reins if the bookstore is to stay in the Tahoe region.

Wondering whether a bookstore might provide an emotionally and intellectually stimulating business for you? Zoe Miller, owner of Grassroots Books in Reno says that “people delightedly tell me that we made a difference in their lives. When we go to parties and meet new people, there’s always someone who raves about their experience at the bookstore which is a great pleasure. Amazing people work at bookstores, and it’s wonderful to hire and work with them.”

The Bookshelf will soon begin the process of selling off the store’s inventory if a buyer doesn’t come along soon.
