Unfortunately, this fabulous little bookstore, like many other independents, is having a tough time these days. The owners aren't willing to give up though. Here's their plan...they've created a "Hero Society" which is open to any patron who agrees to pay a mere $10 a month in return for children's books of their choice. The idea is basically to give the store a guaranteed income so that it can keep going. Anyone can join, and even if you don't make it to Victoria regularly, you can save your store credits and cash them in any time.
