Tsunami Books Update: Fundraising Goal Reached, Staying Open

Tsunami Books, Eugene, Ore., which had launched an ambitious fundraising effort to come up with $302,000 by January 15 in order to sign a new long-term lease and stave off closure, was able to raise more than $100,000 in less than a week to reach its goal, KEZI reported, noting that the "community rallied together, with close to 1,000 people donating to the cause."

"Just thank you to the community for being what it is. There is a reason many of us come to Eugene, Oregon and this is one of them," said owner Scott Landfield, adding that he was overjoyed and humbled by the experience. He has plans to expand the bookstore.
