After a year's absence, Tana Kennemur, owner of The Bookworm, can put all the rumors to rest. The used store is once again open for business.
â€śThere were a lot of rumors,â€ť explained Kennemur, â€śBut for personal and health reasons I had to close for awhile.â€ť
Being away has given Kennemur a fresh outlook and renewed optimism about the store's future. Plans for changes are already in the works.
â€śI'm cleaning up and throwing out,â€ť Kennemur said. Room for new books and an expanded Western section are among her many plans.
