City Lit is 5!


City Lit is five!

Hard to believe!  But when I think about all of the wonderful people, conversations, events, and interactions we have had since August of 2012, the meaning and magnitude of “five years” really starts to sink in. 

People ask me if opening a bookstore was a dream. While I planned and hoped to build a lovely place around books, there was no way I could imagine or anticipate the wonderful experiences that began as soon as we opened our doors.  Something amazing occurs every single day – children rushing to get to the back of the store, tourists from other countries visiting us for a second time, and customers finding a book that they couldn’t find anywhere else.

It is a privilege to be here every day.  All of us at City Lit Books thank you for your constant support and for sharing our passion for books and this place where thinking people gather.  We have learned a lot from you and how to serve our community of avid readers.  Stay tuned for what’s next!

This is an exciting milestone.  Yet even more exciting are all of the future conversations that we can’t imagine but know will come our way.
