Dolly’s Bookstore, a town icon since 1975, features a huge selection from national best sellers to local coffee-table books, all the classics, and lots of “I came in to buy a book and just bought $50 in other cute stuff” gift items like handcrafted bags, pewter pocket tokens, stationery, and designer cards. You’ll find the resident cat, Dolly, on one of the comfy armchairs or on patrons’ laps. Attached to a chocolate store owned by the same family, the aroma from next door will find you ending your book-browsing visit with a piece of fudge or an ice cream cone in hand.
