May at Old Town Books

Summer is knocking at our door, and we have all sorts of cool things happening at OTB to prepare for a lovely summer season!

We have wrapped up Mother’s Day and are now moving on to Teacher’s Appreciation and Graduation. We have curated a wonderful selection of books and gifts to celebrate the wonderful teachers in your life, as well as the amazing graduates from the Class of 2023! Congratulations to all teachers and students for all their hard work this last year!

We are also celebrating AAPI Heritage Month (Asian American and Pacific Islanders) at OTB! Our staff member Joe has built an amazing display that features the voices and experiences of Asian American and Pacific Islander authors in the store!
