With all the books sitting neatly on the new shelves inside the store and a crowd of about 30 waiting outside, Gibson’s bookstore owner Michael Herrmann stood next to Mayor Jim Bouley and the ceremonial ribbon to his new location in downtown Concord. The store moved just down the street into the new Love building and is using the extra space to offer a larger variety of new books, used books and titles by local authors as well as Imagination Village toys and a bookstore cafe.
