Irene Floods Bartleby’s Books in Vermont

Catastrophic flooding in Vermont hit Bartleby’s Books in Wilmington over the weekend. Owner Lisa Sullivan (pictured) told Shelf Awareness that Irene floods had wrecked the bookstore.

Here’s more from Shelf Awareness: “The building was flooded but is still standing. In an e-mail, she wrote, ‘We plan to rebuild as soon as possible.’ For now, she is awaiting FEMA and will then need help removing the contents of the store.”

As the bookseller rebuilds, concerned readers can still order Google eBooks through the independent bookstore. Sullivan also lost her other bookstore in a fire at The Book Cellar earlier this year. All the books were lost in that disaster.
