(We will be open other hours for special events
& other occasions; give us a call!)

Parking is available behind the bookstore.
We welcome folks to use the parking lot instead of adding money to the parking meters which funds additional police patrols and surveillance. We just ask that folks limit use of the parking spaces to one or two hours so that others may also use the lot.
