Store Owner

Owner Dea Lavoie

I was an elementary school teacher for twelve years, but am now happily sharing my love for books with the community. I have four adult children of my own, and 1 grandchild whom you may see in and out of the store.

I am passionate about reading! I believe that there aren’t any kids who don’t like to read, but only kids who haven’t been introduced to the kinds of books that speak to them! I am eager to help with that journey of exploration.
