Books by The Bay is hanging on as a community gathering place, and an alternative to the Big Box. Service and selection- if they don't have it in stock, it will be in by Tuesday!

We saw the bookstore and had to go in. The variety of new and used books is a great find as well as fair prices. We purchased a used book as a gift for our parents and a cup of coffee. Good service and selections.
