This summer eight-year-old Aaron’s Books in Lititz, Pa., is expanding by creating and managing a campus store for its neighbor Linden Hall, the oldest independent girls boarding and day school in the country. The as-yet-unnamed campus store will open on August 23, just before the first day of classes. The students have been invited to name the store and design the logo. The winning name will be revealed during Parents’ Weekend in October.

“We have already partnered with Linden Hall in several ways, so this new relationship is the next step,” said Sam Droke-Dickinson, who founded Aaron’s with her husband, Todd Dickinson. “The school hosts the major portion of our annual Lititz Kid-Lit Festival each November. We’re excited for this new venture and look forward to working with the faculty and students.”

“This partnership is important because it strengthens our connection to one of the prominent local businesses in our community,” added Paige McFarling, director of operations at Linden Hall for students in grades 5-12. “Our friends at Aaron’s Books are the right choice to bring a new campus store to life.”
