The owners, Mary Adams and Janice Holmes, said that the money raised will be used to make The Annapolis Bookstore sustainable. The store’s sustainability plan is spelled out on its website.
“Should we not raise our needed funds by June 21, 2015, we will move into the next item on our plan. Our lease expires August 30, 2016. We have a year before we make our decision regarding extending our lease,” said Adams in an email. The sponsorship effort has already raised $10,000.
The store owners will hold a ‘Mad Hatter’s Ball’ on Sept. 26 to thank sponsors. “We may opt to charge non-sponsors to attend,” Adams said.
