A video message from Webster's Bookstore Cafe

It's been wonderful to see the whole community react to the potential loss of our totemic community meeting place. Here's a message from Elaine, the principle of the bookstore, explaining some of the details of the situation:

(Transcribed from the video above)

"As it stands now, this 30-day notice is a bit of a death sentence. The downtown location on Allen street is about 80% of my business's cash flow, so taking that away suddenly means I have 12 employees that I don't have jobs for, it also means that I can't make my monthly "nut", as you call it, let alone getting (new) financing.

The response to this has been, to say the least, overwhelming, and I am truly grateful from the bottom of my heart."
