What do pretzels have to do with books? Well, a lot! Just ask our principal operator and publisher, Marian Wolbers, and she will tell you. Marian is not a native to the area, but it didn’t take her long to figure out that people in Berks County are obsessed with pretzels (and for good reason, too). Nearly 21 years later, she completely understands why!

Pretzels bring people together, much like books. Marian has even determined that "pretzels and books definitely belong together forever." Learn more about Marian's motivation behind pretzels and delve into the rich history of pretzels.
