Sorry for any confusion, when we promoted "curb service" we meant the curb in front of our store, not the one in front of your house! We now have specified:

"Curbside pick-up here at the store."

M-F, 10-2p 317 23rd Street, 409-750-8200

Thank you!

📖 Literacy begins early and lays the foundation for language. Let your baby hold the book on their own.

It is ok if it is upside down or they turn the pages backwards. Exploring the concept of a book is half of the fun!

Read them backwards and upside down if you have to. But read them.

This is really bad for the media industry. The amount of money that publishers generate from Amazon affiliate links is significant.

We're setting up a GoFundMe for Amazon, they seem to be in trouble!

Shipping books to our customers is our main business at the moment so consider texting USPS to 50409 to get help sending a message to your representative and urge them to supply the Post Office with the funding it needs. #SaveThePostOffice
