It's a New Year!

Do you have a New Year's Day tradition? Watching the Rose Parade? (Heads's on Monday this year.) Making black eyed peas for good luck? Some like to make a fresh start by cleaning out their closet—is that you? What about the most popular tradition— making a resolution?

However you celebrate the start of 2023, please know that we resolve to do our best to be your literary home. We truly wouldn't be here without you. Thank you for being a treasured customer and friend of Copperfish Books. We wish you good health and a Happy New Year!  Hope to see you again soon!

Cathy, Serena, and Team


We're closed today (January 1) tomorrow (January 2) to take some deep breaths and catch up on our reading.
Thank you, thank you, thank you! To all who made  our Holiday Book Drive, Toy Drive (run by the Fresh Jersey Tomatoes), and the Be a Santa to a Senior program (run by Home Instead Senior Care) smashing successes! You absolutely made the holidays brighter for many kids and seniors in our area!


All events will take place at Copperfish Books unless otherwise noted.
