While Away Books
While Away Books opened in June 1994 with a total of 10,500 books. Peggy Cheatham became the owner in 2003, carrying on the While Away tradition of caring for books and people.
While Away currently houses well over 60,000 books and continues to evolve, develop, and grow, thanks to the loyal and caring community here in Douglas County.
Peggy's husband, Tim, is in charge of business operations at While Away. He also owns and operates Elderflower Farm and supplies dried herb blends and flavored vinegars to the store for purchase.
