Although our government has allowed small businesses to open, we're not comfortable with in-store browsing just yet. Please continue to use this regularly updated website (or you can meet us at our door for help with selections). Searching this site is easy! Just click on the home tab above to browse and/or see our suggestion lists below. If you find a book or item you would like, add it to your cart and follow right through to checkout. You do not have to be logged on, but you will be prompted to provide your contact information. We’ll confirm your order, arrange payment and pick up details. We can also deliver to Brighton residences.
Of course you can always simply call us at: 613-475-1269 (please leave a message if we don’t get to the phone) or email us at:


There’s a saying: “Reading is to the mind what exercise is to the body”. We can use this time to exercise our minds, bodies and compassion.
Thank you for being supporters of our little store.
