Loganberry Books Hosts Grand Re-Opening Party


Loganberry Books, 13015 Larchmere Boulevard in Shaker Heights, will officially unveil its new retail space with a special party on January 30, 2004.  From 5 to 10 pm booklovers of all ages are invited to tour the store and enjoy refreshments, children?s activities, and book evaluations and discussions.

Now celebrating its 9th year in business, Loganberry Books is one of the last remaining Cleveland antiquarian bookstores open to the public.  This fall, Loganberry moved two blocks east from its former location and began refurbishing the new space at 13015 Larchmere Boulevard.  The inviting and spacious new store encourages leisurely browsing through more than 50,000 titles.  The inventory features a large selection of collectible, used, and specially picked new titles in every category from fiction to philosophy, with specialties in children?s and juvenile literature, illustrated editions, fine and performing arts, and women?s history and literature.   Most books are in fine condition, and there are many treasures and hard-to-find or out-of-print volumes to discover.  Regular hours are Monday ? Saturday, 10 am to 6 pm. Other hours by chance and appointment.

Loganberry?s popular ?Stump the Bookseller? service has been featured on National Public Radio?s Weekend Edition and in the New York Times. Readers seeking to reconnect with well-loved but incompletely recalled books from their childhoods send descriptions to post on Loganberry?s website for help in identification.  In 2003, Loganberry received 1192 Stumpers and solved 735 ? a 62% success rate!  Stump the Bookseller is found on Loganberry?s web site: www.loganberrybooks.com.  The staff  at Loganberry also performs searches for out-of-print books, and will order any in-print title for its customers.

Loganberry Books is very pleased to welcome Ellie Strong of Strong Bindery to the new space at 13015 Larchmere Boulevard. Relocating from Murray Hill, Strong Bindery has been practicing the art and craft of bookbinding and repair for 20 years. Upcoming classes include paper marbling, bookbinding, the art of the book, and  bookbinding for children.

Between the bookstore and the bindery is a clerestory garage newly refurbished as a gallery space with purple marbled floors painted by Jenny Hitmar.  The first Annex Gallery art exhibition features recent watercolors by Gene Epstein.  Epstein is a freelance artist, graphic designer, musician, and art teacher.  She also designed the purple book signage for the exterior of Loganberry Books. Call Harriett Logan at 216-795-9800, or visit the website at http://www.loganberrybooks.com for more information.  And please plan to come visit the new Loganberry.
