“The mission of the business is to build community,” says Chuck Robinson of Village Books, the popular Fairhaven bookstore he and wife Dee Robinson opened in 1980.
When Village Books and Paper Dreams founders Chuck and Dee Robinson – who owned and operated the iconic bookstore for 36 years – decided to sell in March 2017, they knew exactly where it should land: with longtime employees and managers Sarah Hutton, Paul Hanson and Kelly Evert.
Adjoining Village Books is Paper Dreams, the greeting card and gift store the Robinsons launched two years after the bookstore opened its doors.
