Bookstore Meeting at the Town Hall, January 30, 5:00 PM

As part of the revitalization of Putney Village, a group has been considering having a bookstore which could include local arts and crafts and other things. The new store does not want to compete with other businesses, but rather help them by increasing Putney's offerings.

The small committee, which has been formulating a business plan, feels it needs help from the larger bookstore group to see what the next step will be. This is an open meeting and all are welcome. The meeting will be at the Town Hall at 5:00 PM on Monday, January 30.
