I found books at this store that I could never have found at Amazon, Borders or Barnes and Noble. I am referring to folk tale books for bilingual Filipino-American children. I am proud to know that my grandkids are now reading about our countries' beloved stories, passed down from one generation to another.
Even if you're not Filipino, this store has A LOT to offer. I do hope you stop by the store.
Arkipelago is a community-based specialty bookshop that serves as a resource center for all Filipinos and for those desiring to learn more about the Philippines. It is a center where emerging artists and writers can showcase their works as well as a meeting place for other community related events. It is also bridging the gap that the community needs in providing the resources to educational institutions, libraries, and, of course to the individuals from educators to students.
Pros: Example: best croissants in town
Cons: What are the drawbacks?
