Coming Late Summer 2017: Harbor BOOKS & Gifts

I keep thinking I'm crazy and I hope it works. The plan is to open a bookstore in the Twin Harbor area.


There really isn't a bookstore on the harbor, though a few places carry books, and a lot of people keep lamenting the fact. So, we're hoping to fill a niche.


Our first 300+ books came in earlier this week and we brought in another 100 yesterday, but we're going to need a lot more. We've also begun to slowly remodel now that we have a plan (right).

It's going to take us most of the summer to ramp up to an opening as there is much to do. We're HOPING for a soft opening by August sometime and no later than Sept. 5.

We're planning to carry and feature:

Select, bestselling, popular fiction; new books and gently used; books by local authors; and a good lineup of Christian books as well as art books and art supplies and gifts (for readers, writers and visitors).

May the Fourth Be With You


Greetings and salutations! Here's the newest information from Harbor House:


Please note that we are currently closed for drop-in times and are meeting clients ONLY by appointment only through May 12.

STAR WARS and literary geeks came on by on May the 4th for reading from William Shakespeare's STAR WARS: Verily, a New Hope by Portland Oregon's Ian Doescher. (It really is quite amusing.) We had a brief negotiation with our lightsabers, ate death star cookies, and watched some relative media. In other words we had a blast.

Beginning May 15, we'll be back to our regular winter/spring daily operating hours of 9 a.m. until noon. That's Monday through Friday; we're closed weekends. There will be no workshops in May.

Monday, May 15th is our monthly (third Monday of the month) WRITERS' FELLOWSHIP meeting. We begin at 6 p.m. and finish at 8 p.m. All writers are welcome. This is NOT a critique group, but we do share our work and talk about the craft.

We will be closed Monday, May 29 for Memorial Day.


SUMMER HOURS: begin Tuesday, May 30 and run through Thursday, August 31. Hours TBA; open Monday through Thursday; closed Friday through Sunday except for announced workshops (which we are currently working on for June). It's always best to follow our Facebook page for up-to-date information and last minute closures.
