Jim Lane is the 6th owner of the little book store called The Book Nook on Church Street in Kilmarnock. When he took it over 18 years ago, he was looking for a big change. That’s exactly what he got.

Before his time at The Book Nook, Lane was a studio potter, living in the middle of a forest in Richmond County. He wanted to live in a ‘community,’ drive less, and live among town members who supported each other. He’s happy to report that he walks or rides his bike to work every day now. There is seldom a customer that he doesn’t know. Most of his clients have been with him since he started, too, although he’s always making new friends.
