It opened about five years ago as a community-minded not-for-profit business
Used profits from the bookstore and cafe helping to fund the Enlightenment Literary Arts Center on the building’s second floor.
The cafe was formerly the Caz Coffee Shop and was reopened earlier this year after the space was renovated.
The removal of the cafe’s back wall has opened the space; now you can see a seating area with two large tables, a small bar with three stools and a quaint spiral staircase that has quotes printed on the steps.

They gear most of events towards children.
Book signings.
Quote From Rosanne
Rosanne L. Higgins author of Orphans and Inmates
Why did you choose Dog Ears to sell your book?
“I chose Dog Ears because they are a locally owned small business and because they support local authors. Also, because of their commitment to supporting literacy in the community. Also, because Dog Ears is in the heat of the Irish community and the book's heroine is an Irish immigrant."
