You should write about the new bookstore that opened in place of the pet supply store that closed down in the Roosevelt Collection!
It’s a pop up bookstore called Carpe Librum with a whole lot of used books and CDs/DVDs at great prices. It’s run by the folks from the Turning the Page organization.
Their website provides some more info:
THOUSANDS OF GENTLY USED BOOKS, CDS, AND DVDS ALL PRICED $1 – $4!
Turning the Page has a used bookstore and “pop-up” book sales in Washington, D.C. and Chicago! Carpe Librum (“seize the book“) is the name Turning the Page gives their book selling spaces. All books, CDs, DVDs, and vinyl records for sale at Carpe Librum locations are donated by the public and all proceeds go straight to Turning the Page, in support of our programs.
