First there were independent book stores, then came the corporate book stores which caused the demise of the independent book stores. Now in a moment of bitter irony, the corporate book stores have shuttered their doors as well. That leaves Union City, Fremont, Milpitas, essentially the 880 corridor with fewer book stores.
We know students have been using those cafes as a study venue. We welcome those students at Paddy's. If you were having book reading nights or poetry nights, come by Paddy's.
One of the favourite activities was going to those book stores and browsing through books. That is now a thing of the past. The thing of the future is book exchanges at Paddy's. We got a lot of feedback and that led us to having a book exchange. April 9th and 10th will be Paddy's Book Exchange
Book drop offs start April 8th. All remaining books will be donated to the Union City Library. We hope to see you there and hope to continue this every month.
