"We all have an unsuspected reserve of strength inside that emerges when life puts us to the test." - Isabel Allende

Update Monday, March 23rd

By now everyone has most likely heard the edict from the governor of the state of Connecticut that all non-essential businesses must close down. While all of us at Elm Street Books and certainly many of our customers consider us an essential business, we are going to comply with this request.

Effective immediately until further notice, Elm Street Books will be closed and no longer be open for either curbside delivery or home delivery.

We understand that there will be questions and concerns for those of you who have already ordered books. For those of you who have orderded on the web and have not received books, your credit card will not be charged. Please call  the store and leave a message or e-mail us and we will respond as soon as we can. We appreciate your support and hope our doors will be open again in the not too distant future.
