Greetings. Old Capitol Books has about 8,000 books that have not been processed of which about 3,000 are cookbooks! Our ecclectic books will be making their way to the shelves throughout 2013. Please visit regularly for the best selection. Also, we now have a new workbench for staff. It is a very handsome piece of furniture that allows us to display our beautiful books and work behind the scenes at the same time. We recently rewired and realigned our ceiling lights so they are now lower and aligned with the aisles. Whodathunkit!? We removed some of our book shelves too. This reconfiguration will “lighten-up” the front of the store and allow Old Capitol Books to accomodate book readings. We accommodate book signings and we have some pending in April. STAY TUNED!!
