Liberty Bay Books is staying in Bremerton

Liberty Bay Books, which operated a pop-up bookstore on Pacific Avenue for the last three months, has decided to stick around town.

books1_26076676_ver1.0_640_480Owner Suzanne Droppert said the response from Bremerton shoppers during the holiday season was encouraging.

“We received a really warm welcome for everyone who stopped in,” Droppert said in an email Monday. 

Liberty Bay Books will remain at 409 Pacific Ave. at least through January, while looking for a permanent home downtown.

Droppert said the landlord is looking for a tenant to lease the Liberty Bay Books space and an adjacent suite together, which is more room than the bookstore needs. When a new tenant is found, Liberty Bay Books will move to another location.

The Bremerton Liberty Bay Books store will begin hosting events and clubs early in the New Year.

You can find updates on the Liberty Bay Books Facebook page.
