Lititz, Pennsylvania’s Aaron’s Books is partnering with the Linden Hall School for Girls, where it will be creating and managing a new campus store, opening August 23.
Linden Hall, the country’s oldest independent girls boarding and day school, has a student body of 250 enrolled in grades five through 12. The school is located down the street from Aaron’s current location in downtown Lititz.
The campus store will carry textbooks, school supplies, branded school gear, snacks, and general interest books, and will be located in Linden Hall’s former library. During the school year, it will host workshops with local authors, student-led book clubs, and other events.
“We have already partnered with Linden Hall in several ways, so this new relationship is the next step,” said Aaron’s co-owner Sam Droke-Dickinson. “The school hosts the major portion of our annual Lititz Kid-Lit Festival each November, and many of the girls volunteer their time to help make it a success. The festival simply couldn’t have grown so much the past few years without their help. We’re excited for this new venture and look forward to working with the faculty and students.”
“This partnership is important because it strengthens our connection to one of the prominent local businesses in our community,” said Paige McFarling, Linden Hall’s director of operations. “Linden Hall is proud of our longstanding presence in Lititz, and we value the professionals that live and work alongside us. Our friends at Aaron’s Books are the right choice to bring a new campus store to life.”
Aaron’s and Linden Hall are asking students to submit names and logo ideas for the new campus store. The name will be announced in October.
Eight-year-old Aaron’s Books, which offers new and used books for all ages and hosts community events and services, will maintain its current hours and operations.
