Haffeman gives back to community through bookstore

Islander Bookshop.  

When Melissa Haffeman temporarily closed the independent Islander Bookshop in March as restrictions mounted to prevent the spread of COVID-19, she thought it might spell the end of her small business.

However, she now realizes that the temporary closure might have offered the pause she needed to push through her fears and make the shop into the successful community bookstore she had dreamed of opening.
