Local Bookstore Awarded Grant for Kids
This week Old Firehouse Books was thrilled to find that they had been accepted in James Patterson’s “Read, Kiddo, Read” grant program. The store, which was awarded $2500 from the best-selling author, will use the grant to benefit their summer reading program. Each child who completes the Old Firehouse Reading Challenge will receive a free book. Other prizes include a book-themed pizza party and a raffle for gift cards. Old Firehouse Books, like James Patterson, believes getting kids to read is the best way to ensure a happy, creative, and productive future. More details on the program to come.

We sell ebooks and ereaders!
We are proud to be a part of the Kobo family. Not familiar with Kobo? Kobo is the #1 indie ereader, which has found enormous popularity in Europe and Japan. Kobo ebooks are a standard epub format, which means they work on all the devices you usually use to shop with us (Nook, Sony, iPad, and of course Kobo), with the exception of Amazon's Kindle. In addition to selling Kobo ebooks we also sell Kobo eReaders, in three diffrent sizes and styles. If you have any questions feel free to contact us - we're thrilled to tell you all about Kobo and how to shop electronically while still supporting local.
