Our online inventory is just a sampling of what we have in stock. We have 50,000 additional titles in our retail store.   

Then summer fades and passes and October comes. We'll smell smoke then,  and feel an unexpected sharpness, a thrill of nervousness,  swift elation, a sense of sadness and departure

“Little Hats, Big Hearts”

Monday, October 6, 2014   -   3:00 pm to 7:00 pm

Join us to crochet and/or knit little red baby hats to be donated to the American Heart Association’s “Little Hats, Big Hearts” Campaign. We will have supplies available, but if you have your own knitting needles and crochet hooks, please bring them along. We will supply red yarn for these little hats but if you would like to contribute yarn, please feel free to bring medium or sport weight red yarn that is washable, this is the type of yarn the American Heart Association requires for these hats. 


Cornerstone Cares -In October, we will continue to focus on SCARCE, (School & Community Assistance for Recycling and Composting Education), an organization that is dedicated to teaching the people in our communities to preserve & care for the Earth's natural resources. SCARCE has many ongoing programs that we are asking you, our customers, to participate in by bringing in items that can be reused or our schools and our students.

We will be collecting school supplies, art supplies, office supplies, cell phones, buttons, keys, yarn, knitting needles, crochet hooks, safety pins, and ink cartridges. If you have larger items that you would like to donate, you may contact SCARCE at info@scarce.org.

Please place your donations in the box provided in our foyer. Let us know you made a donation and you will receive a coupon for a free used book.
Making a difference doesn't require lots of money or time. Every donation helps! 
I can't wait to partner with you as we work together to meet the needs in our communities.

Breast Cancer Awareness Month   

  October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. A diagnosis of breast cancer is  devastating to any woman receiving it from her doctor. Women around the world have been working hard to increase awareness of this disease and what can be done to help eliminate it. Prevention is the best way to eliminate a disease like this and that means yearly exams and mamograms. There are many organizations that raise funds to help provide these medical exams and tests, they also help to fund the research being done on this disease.  During October we will be collecting donations to assist in the fight against breast cancer. Drop your change in our collection jar and at the end of October we will match your donations.
