Dearest Village friends.We have been working very hard in trying to locate a new space. We have met with our Mayor, Vice Mayor, Council members and the Town Manager. All who have been extremely kind and available. We can’t even begin to thank you for all of your Love and support. Your thoughts and your letters brought us to tears.It is with deep sadness that we are unable to open again.We had great hope and desire to have a place in Los Gatos but it is not going to work out.
We will be selling our furniture, bookshelves and some items from the store this Weekend and next. We will be selling it at our home 2955 Rubino circle San Jose 95125. 9-12 Saturday and Sunday

WE ARE TRULY HUMBLED BY EVERYONE’S LOVE FOR US AND OUR BOOKSTORE. AS MANY OF YOU KNOW, WE ARE UNABLE TO AFFORD THE SPACE WE ARE IN SO WE HAVE PUT UP A GOING OUT OF BUSINESS SIGN. WE STRONGLY BELIEVE THAT OUR TOWN NEEDS A BOOKSTORE. A MEETING PLACE, A PLACE FOR FRIENDS AND FAMILY TO GATHER, A PLACE FOR CHILDREN TO HAVE THE WORLD OPEN UP TO THEM THROUGH BOOKS. IT WAS OUR PASSION IN 2013 WHEN WE FIRST OPENED ON VILLAGE LANE TO BE ABLE TO BRING READING AND EVENTS TO ENHANCE OUR COMMUNITY. WE ARE ASKING FOR YOUR CONTINUED SUPPORT TO HELP US TO STAY IN TOWN. WE REALIZE EVERYONE HAS VERY BUSY LIVES BUT WE WOULD SO APPRECIATE IT IF YOU WOULDN’T MIND WRITING A LITTLE SOMETHING THAT WOULD HELP SUPPORT OUR EFFORTS. OUR VISION IS TO CONTINUE TO REACH OUT TO THE COMMUNITY BY OFFERING EVENTS FOR EVERYONE LIKE WE HAVE DONE IN THE PAST SUCH AS :
WHERE’S WALDO SCAVENGER HUNT (ENCOURAGING TO SHOP LOCAL)
SUPPORT YOUNG AUTHORS AT FISHER ( SHOWCASING THEIR BOOKS)
STORY TIME, CRAFT DAY ,AUTHOR EVENTS FOR ADULTS/ CHILDREN HALLOWEEN/CHRISTMAS PARTY, STAR WARS DAY ,DISNEY READING DAY CHILDREN’S BOOK WEEK
WORKING WITH LOS GATOS HIGH SCHOOL’S REQUIRED READING JR. GIANTS BOOK DRIVE FOR UNDERPRIVILEGED KIDS
FUTURE EVENTS SUCH AS PLANNING SENIOR NIGHT SOCIAL HOUR/ BOOK CLUB WORKING WITH THE MEADOWS AND THE TERRACES TO COORDINATE EVENTS.
WE LOVE WHAT WE DO AND WILL CONTINUE TO STRIVE TO HAVE A POSITIVE IMPACT IN OUR COMMUNITY.WE WOULD LIKE TO COMPILE A LIST OF SUPPORTERS.
PLEASE REPLY TO OUR EMAIL BY WAY OF A NOTE OR LETTER TO LEND YOUR SUPPORT TO OUR STAYING IN LOS GATOS. WE WOULD APPRECIATE ANYTHING YOU CAN DO.
THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF OUR HEARTS
