“Too many books” –said no one ever
I just wanted to reach out and let you know about our grand re-opening party coming up this Thursday April 16th, 2015. Our little independent (accredited) English bookstore has gone through some big changes. We have been working tirelessly over the last couple of months to improve everything from creating space for hundreds of more books to completely renovating the look and feel of our store.
We are also on social media; be sure to check us out (and follow) on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter to stay in the loop about events such as the Authors For Indies Canada event which we are participating in for the first time this coming May 2nd (more to follow about the line-up of authors we have booked!).
Thanks –and have a great weekend!
P.S. We also have a brand new website where you can see what we have in stock in our store and place your order: http://www.LibrairieClio.ca
