What I say is, a town isn't a town without a bookstore. It may call itself a town, but unless it's got a bookstore it knows it's not fooling a soul.” -Neil Gaiman

Hardest story to tell:
     It is with a heavy heart that we tell you that Acorn Books will be closing on June 13, 2015 after 3 years of service to Dover and surrounding communities. Together, we have gotten over 100.000 books into our community and after 3 amazing years, we are both sad and excited to begin a new chapter of our company.
     We thank our many loyal customers who have made a point of shopping locally, and we are sorry we are not able to sustain this location. It is our greatest hope that we will be able to re-open in another location at some point. We give deep thanks to our long serving staff, our vendors, and again, most of all, to our customers.
     We realize the community will have questions and hope the information listed below will be of service. 
Books will no longer be taken in the store for buyback credit as of May 19th.
Gift Cards will no longer be sold in the store as of May 18th
Starting May 19th, everything in the store will be 20% off. 
Acorn Books will not be taking special orders after May 23rd.
Customers who have credit on file will, of course, be able to use their credit on used books until the store is closed. 
Gift certificates will be accepted in the store until the store is closed.
We will be running a progressive sale until our store closing date, Saturday, June 13, 2015 @ 8pm.
