WALDOBORO — Busy volunteers from the Waldoboro Public Library will again be hanging out the open sign on the Village Bookshop at 25 Main Street, where it shares space with the Waldoboro office of the Midcoast Conservancy. All proceeds from book sales benefit the library. Opening day is Tuesday, April 13.
The secondhand bookshop, which originally opened in July 2019, has taken precautions over the past year due to Covid-19 by using curbside pickup, closing for periods of time, and setting up outside last summer at the Long Cove Farmer's Market.
New hours will be Tuesday-Friday, 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.; and Saturday, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
The wide selection of hard-back and paperback books includes fiction, mysteries, biographies/memoirs, poetry, children's, Maine-focused, antiquarian collectables, gardening, spiritual, how-to, and much more. Readers can find a gently used best-selling hardcover published in the past year for $5 or a 50-cent paperback thriller, and everything in between.
Covid safety rules, including mandatory masks and no more than three customers at a time, will apply.
