Each floor has a different theme. The first floor has mainly popular books and new releases. The second floor houses expansive children’s section, as well as a play area. The third floor has a Starbucks, periodicals, and the bargain books. The final fourth floor houses the majority of the store’s fiction and is a favorite among bookies because of the weekly free poetry and book readings.
