Second Chance Book Corner East Liverpool is the winning name chosen for the used bookshop that opened at The Way station in East Liverpool earlier this month.
at 135 W. Fifth St. The Book Corner is celebrating Saturday, December 3rd with a free children's book for all children who enter the store. Daytime hours extend to the East Liverpool Christmas Parade, where the shop is open from 15:00 to 17:30 and from 9:00 to lunch on the first Saturday of the month.
The store announced new prices for all Christian non-fiction and self-help books – $10. The new category "Christmas" was added thanks to the donation of a large number of Christmas books.
Regular store prices are $1 for hardcover books, 50 cents for paperbacks, and 25 cents for children's books.
In a competition to name the new store, store volunteers Shane Wilson and Louise Barnett were co-winners, and management combined Barnett's Second Chance with Wilson's Book Corner. Each received a $10 prize for a free book.
19 people suggested titles, including Book Way, Turn the Page , Book Station, Fifth Avenue Book Depository , and Book and See.
“In an effort to offer God's hope and grace to all who struggle with past mistakes or choices, we have felt that Second Chance fits into every aspect of our ministry. We are grateful that our God has saved us and will give us back the lost time,” said Tammy Blackburn. This is 125 watts. She is the administrator of Liverpool East railway station on Fifth Street and a thrift store.
Second Chance was chosen along with Book Corner because it "exemplifies the warm and welcoming atmosphere that Karen Miller, Donnie Best and many other volunteers have created. We are so grateful for the labor of love and the volunteers who are investing in the environment and stocking the store,” said Blackburn. “We are also grateful for the second round of donations, which are a blessing to many in need and give us the funding we need. We need to be there and serve East Liverpool."
Second Chance Book Knock's regular hours of operation are three days a week, Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday, from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm. Thursday from noon to 18:00; and the first Saturday of every month from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm.
Donated books can be brought to the bookstore at regular times or returned to a secondhand store.
