After three years in Brooklyn, Greenlight Bookstore will expand with local partnerships.
Wine merchants Greene Grape allowed the bookstore to install a coffee bar, a full-kitchen, an office and a bigger events space. Greenlight will also serve as a vendor for the famous Brooklyn Academy of Music through a kiosk and Internet distribution. The bookstore also offers Google eBooks online.
Co-owner Jessica Stockton Bagnulo told The Brooklyn Paper: “Figuring out how to serve your community is, I think, one of the keys to long-term success in our business …We’re in the business of selling books — not paper. E-books are another way readers are experiencing books, and we want to be the best bookstore we can be.”
