Happy New Year!

It’s hard to believe that 2023 is over. We had a very eventful year at the store, moving twice and opening our new, expanded children’s section. Everything went smoothly and for that we need to say a very big THANK YOU to the extended Main Point Books family. There was very little down time for our staff, but they stepped up and made the transitions happen. Plus, our customers followed us to our pop-up shop and back to North Wayne Avenue, and for that we are very appreciative.

It won’t surprise anyone that it can get stressful in the store at the end of the year, but this year, there was so much to be thankful for. 

  • You were all understanding when, invariably, a book meant for a Christmas gift did not show up on time. 
  • We also had heartwarming examples of paying-it-forward. When Ben complimented a woman on her Christmas purse, she emptied it and gave it to him. 
  • A customer walking around with the last copy of a children’s book, gave it to someone looking for the title and they paid for the book that she ended up purchasing.                          
  • We had wrappers from Teachers Teammates, Hosts for Hospitals, Pals for Life, PEO and the Girl Scouts, helping us out at this busy time of year, talking about their wonderful groups and raising money. 
  • We had wonderful authors visit the store from near and far all year, leading to some phenomenal programming and countless signed books.                

We cannot say how grateful we are for the many moments that make up the thoughtful and caring community that is Main Point Books.                

As we move into 2024, we look forward to many more wonderful memories. We wish you and your loved ones a very happy and healthy New Year and look forward to seeing you soon
