With Heavy Hearts

Island Books exists to serve the needs of our community. Within our community, we are a family of people who share a love for books and a passion for book selling. We also deeply care for one another within our Island Books family. So it is with great sadness and heavy hearts that we are sharing the news that we have lost a member of our Island Books family. 

Long time Island Books employee, Marni L. Gittinger, has suddenly and unexpectedly passed away.

Bookstores are all about the written word. Unfortunately, today we have no words to describe how we feel having lost a member of our beloved Island Books family. We are devastated.

Godspeed Marni! We love you.

The Island Books staff (Laurie, Victor, Cindy, James, Lillian, Lori, Marilyn, Miriam, and Nancy)
