Book store owner needs help on moving day


If you have a kind heart and a strong back, listen up. Gwenyfar Rohler has been packing up more than 150,000 books after the Front Street building that houses her book store was condemned. Because of the structural issues, she's legally the only one allowed in the building to pack everything up, but on the February 27 she says she needs all the help she can get.

Starting at 8 a.m., you can help by bringing hand trucks, red wagons, anything to transfer boxes. The books are temporarily moving down the street to the basement of the Old Bullock Hospital Building while Rohler looks for a new space for her store.

Moving Gwenyfar Books

My comment is this : The State Department that was digging up the ground all around her building that caused it to be Unsafe for her to run her business out of ought to pack her books up and move them for her!!! That would only be an act of kindness on thier part don't you think??

What color is the sky in your world?

What "state department" do you think has been digging around down on Front St. CFPUA is replacing 100 year old pipes, for safety reasons, and then COW is going to beautify the street when they are done with the work. The work they are doing had nothing to do with the problems in the building which currently houses the bookstore. The facade of the building was pulling away form the actual building long before any digging started downtown, making the building unsafe and in need of repair. If you'd take time to read previous stories, or watch the news, and gather your facts before making idiotic comments, we'd all appreciate it very much.

Well of course.......

It would be a good idea if the city took responsibility, but you should not hold your breath till that happens.

I suspect that the building owner has a team of lawyers working as we speak.

Meanwhile, she needs to get out of there. Many lovers of old books will be down there on the 27th.
