Lugano's Book Nook is bidding farewell

It is sad news but inevitable. The Book Nook, Lugano's English Library is closing it doors after 17 years! Ticino's lending library and used bookseller in Viganello is in the process of liquidating their vast collection.

Heavy-heartedly I will say that it is an opportunity for you to pick up some books, DVDs or audio books for everyone in your family - at only CHF. 1.- a piece! Plan to stop by Tuesday December 18th from 14:00-16:00, Wednesday, December 19th from 14:00-16:00, Thursday, December 20th from 14:00-16:00 or Tuesday, December 23th from 14:00-16:00.

A special find of mine was "Enchanting Ticino"by Hanna & Juliusz Komarnicki. This unique book captures the nature, events and culture that surrounds us. It is a photographic journey of discovery illustrating the beauty of Ticino. The limited text is in English, and therefore makes a fabulous gift.

A big, big thank you to all the volunteers, helpers and sponsors over the years that made this lovely spot a little haven away from home for many of us English speakers in search for English books for our kids to read. The Book Nook was especially appreciated by its supporters before the arrival of Amazon & Co. when it was still a challenge to find a different Good Night story every week to read to our kids.

You will be dearly missed by your followers.
