Our Community Commitment

We serve as a resource for tourists, new residents and locals by providing a wealth of information on Cumberland and the surrounding area.  We supply maps, brochures and restaurant recommendations.  We also have a community bulletin board at the entrance of our store posting various activities.  There's always lots going on in Cumberland.

As a community bookstore, we pride ourselves on the involvement we have in our community.  We have been a part of Downtown Cumberland's history and continue to be a part of Cumberland's future and revitalization.
