July at Old Town Books

July keeps the heat coming, so we’re thinking a little out of the box this month with some cool table themes and recommendations!

This month we are featuring tables with our current favorite children’s books, great biographies and memoirs, some of our favorite side gift items, and lastly, we have offered some fun recommendations for specific customer types! You can find a full list of available selections below.

Some of our favorite side gift items we are featuring include coffee mugs, assorted journals, book fans, stylish eye glass holders, book pouches, and more!

We will be having children’s story time every Saturday at 11 AM throughout the month. Stay tuned for news on our upcoming rock and roll music story time later in the month (Date TBD).
