Gratitude 2020

Gratitude. We are feeling so thankful to our customers for the ongoing support, kind words and of course, the purchases. We appreciate your patience with our Covid protocols, your enthusiasm for reading and for supporting small businesses. We also want to thank the Town of Gananoque and the 1000 Islands Gananoque Chamber of Commerce for their support and guidance as we navigate Covid-19 retail detail.
We’ve loved seeing you with your purchases from our friends and neighbours in downtown Gananoque, and bumping into you in the take-out queues at our local restaurants. Thank you all for investing in our community, together we'll keep Gananoque vibrant and flourishing.


In this unexpected and challenging year, we're grateful for silver linings - like more people enjoying the beautiful outdoor adventures our region has to offer, families learning new skills together and community organizations finding new ways do and share what they love to do. Please check out the great work of the Thousand Islands PlayhouseThe Frontenac Arch Biosphere Network  and the Gananoque Farmers Market,
The days may be hard, the isolation may be challenging or even devastating and the silver linings may not always be enough. So, from the bottom of our hearts, thank you for doing your part to keep each other safe, and for your kindness, generosity and perseverance. Together, we're getting though this. In the words of a jolly old soul we know…
“Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night!”
