NEWS AND EVENTS
It's a tough decision but it's the right decision. Pickwick Books is temporarily CLOSED and we will reopen when this horrible virus has passed and we receive the all clear.
I'm going to miss our chats!
I have placed a bin by the front door with some free books in it for you to take as needed, so that you will be sure to have something to read!
Please don't leave any of your books in the bin, I will refill as needed. You can always let me know through social media if empty and if you have special requests, I will do my best.☺️
Stay well. See you soon!
We are thrilled!
2020 is Pickwick Books 25th anniversary.
Stay tuned for upcoming celebrations.
Meet Brenda -
I am a lifelong resident of Waterdown, where I live with my husband and daughter in a houseful of pets and books.
I was employed for many years as a journalist and editor at the Flamborough Review and currently work as a freelance writer and copy editor.
I have been a fan of Pickwick Books for a long time, not only because of the unexpected literary treasures you can find inside on any given day, but also because it is a local business that supports our community and spreads the love of reading. And, did I mention I like books?
I am excited to join the Pickwick’s team, and look forward to meeting you all!
MEET OUR STAFF MEMBERS
PAULA & BRENDA!
When I saw that Cheryl was looking for part time staff at Pickwick Books, I just couldn't resist applying. I have a full time job, but the romance of working in a beautiful, old-fashioned bookstore in my free time was very exciting to me.
Books have taken me on many adventures, introduced me to new friends and scared the living daylights out of me, but I've loved them all.
It will be such a pleasure to be surrounded by all those stories written just for us.
I am very much looking forward to meeting you, our customers, and making your visit to Pickwick Books an enjoyable experience.
See you soon and let's talk books!
Have you met Oliver?
Our shop mascot, a wee
chi-weenie rescue from Texas, is very happy to be here and would love to say hello!
"If you are a dreamer, come in,
If you are a dreamer, a wisher, a liar,
A hope-er, a pray-er, a magic bean buyer...
If you're a pretender come sit by my fire
For we have some flax-golden tales to spin."
