You can't get a cup of tea big enough or a book
long enough to suit me.

Green Mountain Books and Prints opened its doors for business in March of 1977. Ralph and Rosemary Secord had a camp in Sheffield where they spent many summers. In the beginning the store was only open three days a week during the summer months, then the Secord's would head back to Connecticut leaving the store in the hands of Stanley Brill for the winter. Mr. Brill built many of the bookshelves that are still in use today. Prior to opening Green Mountain Books and Prints Ralph Secord was a librarian and ran a business called The Gilead Hill Bookstore. Ralph and his son also toured around the countryside selling remaindered books to schools. Eventually Ralph and Rosemary bought a house in Lyndonville and took on the bookstore as a full time venture.
