welcome

DogStar Books has a new home - a vastly larger space - in the building that served for many decades as the home of the venerable Lancaster haberdashery, Fillings. The rambling layout and existing cherry woodwork provide a perfect setting for a large book store and gallery. Our new space will allow us to greatly expand our available inventory of books, provide dedicated art exhibition space, and space for author events, children oriented readings and storytelling as well as space to sit and relax with some great coffee. We are very pleased with the progress we have made in transforming the wonderful attributes of the old Fillings shop into a new community resource.
