Starting on July 1, Kepler's will be closed for a short summer break while we work hard to bring you a new store.
Good news: the community has responded very strongly to our fundraising campaign. Even better news: that means that we will be able to start right away on many of the changes that we have planned for Kepler's. We are going to be ordering lots of new books, restocking the shelves, setting up new computer systems, and changing the store layout. To make sure we get it all done before school starts again, we are going to take a short break starting on July 1.
We will be updating this page with some pictures and tales of our progress!
