There is a terrible emptiness in Aventura. That feeling has been more painfully felt with the closing of Barnes & Noble bookstore. There is a very small, temporary, public library at City Hall, yet Aventura is without a real library and bookstore. Most of us have iPads, Kindles, Nooks, e-readers and can buy books online. However, there was something special about a place for many of us to purchase or browse through books, magazines, periodicals or buy coffee and sit and talk with a friend.
