The Lahaska Bookshop in Peddler's Village, Lahaska, Pa., celebrated its grand opening last week. The event was launched with a children's hour of storytelling and music, followed by a blessing and a ribbon-cutting ceremony, after which guests enjoyed appetizers, local wine and beer tastings and live music. Glenda Childs, owner of the Lahaska Bookshop and the Doylestown Bookshop in Doylestown, Pa., welcomed everyone and thanked Doylestown Bookshop manager Jennifer Brenninger and Lahaska Bookshop manager Nathan Halter, and the staffs of both bookstores, for their work in getting the store ready. "They all continue to make my dream come true," Childs said.
