THE FUTURE OF TSUNAMI BOOKS, PART 7
(please feel free to share this):
Wednesday, February 8, 10 AM-9 PM:
Show-of-Support for Tsunami Day.
The Lease for Tsunami Books is up June 30, 2017. There are other major business concerns that want to take over this property beginning July 1, 2017. We want to keep our Community Bookstore and Cultural Center growing here at 2585 Willamette Street in beautiful South Eugene, but do not yet have the financial resources to stay. We have asked for, and kindly received the opportunity to deliver a proposal to the building owners for a minimum five-year lease. The deadline is March 31. At the very least, the rent will double.
On December 28, 2016, a Public Meeting was held. Thirty-nine people participated. Since then a growing number of motivated members of the Community have stepped up to help, and after five meetings a highly creative plan is being formulated. To that end, WE INTEND TO RAISE +/- $400,000 BY MARCH 30TH TO SECURE A NEW FIVE YEAR LEASE WITH OPTIONS.
The key question: Is there enough support from the Community that is Tsunami Books to energize this movement? To help us find out, please drop by the Bookstore, even for a moment, on Wednesday, February 8, from 10 AM-9 PM. That’s the day we’ve picked as Show-of-Support for Tsunami Day. We’ll be taking a head count, and we’ve got a very simple 4-question form we’d like you to fill out, with copies to share with your friends. Volunteers from the ad-hoc committee and Scott (prez and gm) will be here all day to answer your questions and listen to your ideas. The newspapers, tv, and radio are all being notified. Let’s share a laugh and a tear of joy, and get on with the effort to make our own good way in this crazy new world.
