About Librarian Anna

You're not sure how you've gotten here but there's the bitter tang of magic on your tongue. Perhaps you stumbled into a faerie ring, or passed through a wardrobe. Sunlight is streaming through the leaves of the trees around you, shadows dancing across your skin. The clearing is empty but far from silent. If you take a moment, you can hear the chatter of a city square; neighbors calling greetings, shoppers in the market. When you breathe in deep you can smell the under-current of freshly baked bread a smoked meats alongside the heavy earthy smells of the forest. You find yourself walking towards the noise without thinking. Shielding your eyes from the burst of sunlight as you escape the brush, you realize that you're not in Kansas anymore.

The village square looks like something from a fairy tale, from The Hobbit or Narnia. Something that shouldn't exist in real life. There are people and animals that act like people all over. Faeries flitting about, a faun haggling over some eggs with someone who could only be a wizard. In a daze you stumble about the town center, breathing a sigh of relief as you recognize at least one thing in this world -- the library.

You bound up the stairs and push the heavy wooden doors open with a loud creeaaak...

Once inside, the smell of well loved pages and burning candles brings you down to earth. There are overstuffed armchairs littered about the room and rows of bookcases filled to the brim lining the walls. Somewhere within the building you can hear the echoes of a cat meowing as it threads through the stacks. In the center of it all is a heavy wooden desk with a bell labeled 'ring for assistance'. It seems odd to ring a bell in a library, but needing to find some sort of explanation for your whereabouts you lift it and give it a shake. 

The gentle chimes reverberate in the rafters and a young woman pops up from underneath the desk, red hair falling across her glasses.

"Welcome to the Wylderwood Library, how may I assist you?"

You recount your adventure thus far, expecting some sort of easy direction back home but instead she just stirs a cup of tea and slides it over to you along with sage green tome. 

"This will have everything you need," she says ushering you into one of the armchairs by the fire.

Perplexed by her lack of concern, you look down at the book in your hands and flip open the cover to the title page expecting a map or a tourist's guidebook. Instead the firelight flickers across the book illuminating:

The Scones & Tomes Collective

 “Stories have to be told or they die, and when they die, we can't remember who we are or why we're here.” - The Secret Life of Bees

Welcome to the Scones & Tomes Collective!
I’m Anna and I’m so glad you’re here. I am a wife, a mom, and a librarian among other things.

I, like you might be, am on a quest to find peace and margin in a world that refuses to allow space for us to just be a person.

The Scones & Tomes Collective was born out of a desire for a space in the noise to bring some coziness into the hustle and bustle of our day to days. Scones & Tomes is a lifestyle brand serving up inspirational, cozy, and bookish content every week.
So, grab a cup of cozy and let’s begin this journey together,
