Open Book Co-op to Open Store
While we are sorrow to hear of bookstores closing, it's great news to hear of a new one opening. The Open Book co-operative has signed a one-year lease to take over a former Harry Schwartz bookstore space on Oakland Avenue in Shorewood, WI. A spokesperson for Open Book says "we're about halfway there" in raising the money needed to actually open a store. They have raised about $50,000, and are hoping supporters will come forward and donate and/or purchase memberships to help raise the remainder.
