We first established in 2011 as a brick and mortar bookstore in Alexandria, Ontario. Due to the changes we have faced in light of Covid-19, we have decided to set up shop online to better assist our customers. We offer a friendly and efficient service. Our physical store is also open and we would love to meet you. We are of course observing the safe Covid-19 social distancing practices.
Lovely Words from A Customer
There is a place on our Main street where Glengarry folks love to meet, A treasured source of local lore, it is called the R and L Bookstore. Novels of old are there for sale, Ralph Connor shares tales of our dale, Charles Dickens, and George Eliot too, bring stories on the past they knew.
Then there are works of today, Grisham and Dan Brown have their say, Margaret Atwood shines so bright, sharing her vision and insight. Fine poetic works are also there, yes, Donne, Blake, and Keats they do share. The poems of Shelled are there too, along with texts to aid our view.
Local poets sang loud and clear about Glengarry’s past so dear, Dorothy Dumbrille so refined, wrote poems of the finest kind. Douglas Fales speaks so clear and true of the trade folk that he once knew. Both of them shed light on the past in verses that will surely last.
The Bookstore is a special place, where works of art are given space, along with local arts and craft, the store is also warmly staffed. It truly is a fine resource, as our learning takes its course, making our community, a really pleasant place to be.
