Kim Krug is the owner of an independent bookstore in Western New York; Monkey See, Monkey Do… Our mission is to foster a love of reading, spark curiosity and imagination, encourage independent thinking, and promote healthy, active lifestyles for all ages. We "bring books to life" through creative, literacy-based programs and events.
We pivoted our business last fall during the pandemic and shed the brick & mortar business model for a fully mobile bookstore. We are constantly looking at new ways to engage our readers. We have expanded our book services and literacy experiences both virtually and in-person through partnerships with fellow businesses.
