News About Logos Books Store

Logos Books is excited to announce that the Friends of the Library Board has approved an extension of our current lease agreement with Browman Properties. We will continue to serve you and other book-lovers for the next several years.  In anticipation of this extension, Logos Managers have discussed how we can improve our product and service.  Check back here, as we’ll be telling you of some exciting improvements to the store proper, from the very top to the bottom.
Here is one of those improvements: Logos has seen-the-light and you will too the next time you come into the store at 513 2nd Street.  With the input and support of our landlord, Logos has converted its entire lighting system to modern energy-saving LED lighting.  Come take a look, not a shadow in the whole place.  Patrons will be able to see even the tiniest print in shelved books they examine. Our electric bill will go down by over 40%.  With that savings going to the Davis Library and its many programs supporting reading in our community.
