Derrick has been in the book industry for eight years – at Borders before our bookstore opened. He is very book savvy and loves ordering books for customers. He is handling our corporate/school sales too. If you need a recommendation for a good read – stop in & chat with Derrick. He is a big sports fan too. The Broncos are his favorite NFL team. That is ok...we think.


      Melissa had a career in finance prior to opening the bookstore. While it is comforting that “debits always equal credits”, owning a bookstore is so much more fun and rewarding! Melissa loves to read all different genres of books. Getting immersed in story is so fantastic! When she is not working at the store or reading, Melissa loves to hike, garden, cook, and kayak and watch hockey or football games.


        A bookseller for many years, a painter

        for even longer, and a lifetime reader, Marlene is happy to offer suggestions

        from nationally acclaimed writers

        as well as local talent from the

        Inland Northwest. Marlene is our gift buyer and runs the consignment programs for local authors and artists. She helps keep our kids section a fun place for children to find wonderful books and learning activities.
