The Ohio Book Store on Main Street is a book lover?'s dream: a five-story building filled with books and magazines. The store, celebrating its 75th year in operation, was founded by James Hardwick in 1940. Hardwick?'s long-time employee Jim Fallon has owned the book store for the last fifty years. The Ohio Book Store also provides custom bookbinding and restoration of old books.

Jim Fallon joins us along with local historian and author Bob Wimberg to talk about the bookstore, what it has to offer, and how it?'s stayed successful throughout the decades.
