A Note to Our Valued Customers

We strongly encourage you to consider placing orders in one of three ways that can then be picked up at curbside:
1. Call our store at 262-547-1060 any time after 12 NOON, Monday through Saturday, to place an order via phone. You can also call for suggestions as to titles or other items that may fit your particular needs.
2. Place an order via email by logging in at: marthamerrells@sbcglobal.net
You can also request suggestions by email that we will either respond to with a follow-up email or phone call, depending on your preference.
3. For the latest information, follow us on Facebook. You can message us with questions or place orders as well.
Since both Norm and Eve have been educators (teachers, principal, media specialist), it seems like our contribution to the community should be the following:
We are providing free materials to parents who want their children to continue learning at home. Materials are being added each day. Parents should feel free to call or email us with their specific needs as well as the ages of their children. We will put together a packet that can then be picked up curbside.
