From My Shelf Books Launches Petition

The owners at From My Shelf Books in Wellsboro, PA, are asking for help. They’ve launched a petition: Keep “From My Shelf Books” at 25 Main Street.

The petition, which will be delivered to the landlord and officials beginning at the county commissioner level all the way up to the President of the United States reads: “Tioga County and Wellsboro needs a bookstore. Renew From My Shelf Book’s lease and keep the bookstore where it is, and keep rural America reading.”

“The landlord won’t renew the bookstore’s lease. He wants to rent to someone else, but Wellsboro needs a bookstore. The store has always paid rent, and never been late. It’s a small town and there’s just not anywhere else for the store to go.”

If you would like to help the bookstore and sign the electronic petition, you may do so here.
