Looks like we’ll be seeing them in the Lionel J. Wilson Building near city hall:
Laurel Book Store has been an important venue for community events since its launch in 2001, and is well known for its selection of independent and locally published books. However, the store recently announced a move from its namesake district to a larger space in downtown Oakland. The bookstore will keep its name — owner Luann Stauss credits her friends and customers in the Laurel district as the reason for the store’s growth. The new space is expected to open in October, at about the same time as the business’ thirteenth anniversary. The bookstore also has launched an Indiegogo crowd-funding campaign that will run through September 24 with a goal of raising $50,000 for the move.
