Blackbird books is located on the bottom floor of the Solstice Center. They moved this year. We finally asked a local after following google maps and not finding it. Hope this helps someone. Happy hunting

Beautifully crafted space with quirky details. It's a great place to Linger and enjoy books / warm drinks / cake (or all 3!). The children's section has many lovingly selected titles and Lorraine is always around with advice if you're choosing a present.
