About us

We started Carpe Librum in January 2016 because we're passionate about making sure people get good books at prices they can afford.

Stan Lee is our furry co-owner and the senior ranking staff cat. He loves head scratches, feather toys, and being the center of attention. His favourite books include Avid Reader by Robert Gottlieb and The Eldritch Heart by Matthew S. Cox, and his preferred method of reading is to lay on books and absorb the text of the books he lays on. 


Melissa Eisenmeier

Melissa Eisenmeier co-owns Carpe Librum. She loves Harry Potter, historical fiction (especially if it’s set during the Revolutionary War or World War 2), and animals. Her current favourite books are The Second Mango, by Shira Glassman, and The Little Bookstore of Big Stone Gap, by Wendy Welch.


Spencer is our junior staff cat. He’s usually too busy napping to supervise, although occasionally he can be found laying on his favourite humans.
