We are sad to announce that Dick Sommerfeld, co-owner of Old Firehouse Books, passed away on Sunday, June 26th. Always ready to entertain staff with a good story or a bad joke, Dick was our taskmaster, accountant, handyman, and woodworker all rolled into one. His wisdom, guidance and financial savvy were indispensible, and helped build Old Firehouse Books into the store it is today. He will be missed. In lieu of flowers, please send donations to the Book Industry Charitable Foundation, 713 W. Ellsworth Road, Suite A, Ann Arbor, MI 48108 or donate online at https://donationpay.org/bincfoundation/.
